Aircraft on show

September 24 2019

AN RAF veteran will host a model aircraft exhibition in Downend later this month.

Graham Hitchings will display his collection of more than 400 models of planes from the First and Second World War at Peache Court, the independent living scheme where he lives.

The event, which includes other memorabilia, is free but any donations will go to Staple Hill Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

This is the second time Graham has organised this exhibition at the venue. He held one last year to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The exhibition takes place at the members lounge on Saturday September 21 from 12-4pm and on Sunday Sept 22 from 11am-4pm.
