OK, lets try another angle. If an airfields hours of operation are say 9 am to 5 pm local, is it closed outside these hours, or open with no services?

I assume this confusion arises because you live in the Midlands and so English isn't your first language the answer is "it's closed" .
Certainly not the case at a number of airfields - I fly from Goodwood and outside the notified hours it is useable if you have filled in an out of hours form, so it is not really open but neither is it really closed, a good case showing where the confusion lies!

does one need any kind of qualification to operate an a/d in the UK?
depends I think what level you are talking about - a farmstrip needs nothing and some can be quite challenging!
