The Pocklington Post published this item about the threat to Pocklington airfield operations from a proposed development on the approach/departure path for the main runway. Ironically it appeared in the paper opposite the previous story in “Press and Reviews” about how we are training world class pilots at Wolds GC!
The April/May 17 issue of Sailplane and Gliding published Wolds GC Chairman Graham Wadforth’s observations on being involved in the filming of the BBC Look North programme about the Yorkshire Wolds Way – you can just see him in the rear seat behind presenter Paul Rose in the main photo.
The programme was transmitted locally on BBC One Yorks and Lincs in January 2017 and a national transmission on BBC 2 is anticipated in early spring 2017.
Last month the Pocklington Post published an article about our fundraising for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at this year's Two-Seater Competition and Annette Bendelow's sponsored running in the YorkMarathon series. In addition a further £100 has been donated through John Pursey of Devon and Somerset Gliding Club who "enthused by ale and fund raising for YAA" at the Two-Seater Competition was challenged by his friend Lin of Knaresborough, to lose a stone in eight weeks - and he actually lost eighteen pounds.
