Leicestershire kite meet on Easter Monday (and other events)

Post by Julie Whit » Sun, 15 Apr 2001 05:03:00

MONDAY 16 APRIL (EASTER MONDAY)
Charity Farm, near Baxterley
near Atherstone, Leicestershire

Following the very succesful MKF fly-in at Charity Farm at the
beginning of the month an extra meeting has been arranged for all
those with kiteflying withdrawal symptoms due to f&m.

Charity Farm is a brilliant site - flat, mown grass with wonderful
open country views.  Part of the flying site is a airstrip (which has
to be kept clear in case any plane wishes to land - and they do!) -
but don't let that put you off going to fly a kite there as there is
plenty of room.

Onsite parking is 1 per car as this is a private venue.
Toilets and aeroplane hanger (with aeroplane exhibits) to shelter in.

HOW TO FIND CHARITY FARM
Baxterley is south of Atherstone, just off the A5/M42 junction and
Charity Farm is between Baxterley village and Baxterley church on the
way to Wood End.
