St Georges chapel - RAF Biggin Hill

St. George's RAF Chapel of Remembrance Biggin Hill is scheduled for closure

Responsible department: Ministry of Defence

By March 2016,the Royal Air Force/Ministry of Defence are withdrawing all support from the Chapel. If no one or group takes on the responsibility of this magnificent Memorial Chapel, it will be closed without access to the public or church services.

This Chapel was built as a Memorial to Aircrew, who had their lives taken in World War ll, they fought and they died. We, today, have the freedom to forget.

How many people stated in November " We will remember them " yet words cost nothing and actions appear unaffordable.

Petition
Please Don't Close St. George's RAF Chapel of Remembrance Biggin Hill - e-petitions

Signed just now! Surely Jock Stirrup could sort this in a jiffy? Why not petition him in the House of Lords!

2015 is the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. This could end up as the mother of all blunders by the bean counters at MoD. I hope it does!

That's an oxymoron if ever there was one!

Oh - and DCO!

Signed. How sad it is that within the Royal Air Force and MoD there is so little soul, pride and gratitude towards those who saved us 75 years ago. WE will remember them.
