This year’s RAF Halton Families’ Day was held in the vicinity of the Nuffield Pavilion with the key aim of thanking the RAF Halton Whole Force and their families for their hard work supporting RAF100. The day provided a wide range of entertainment for all ages.
Although the planned Red Arrows display did not go ahead, families weren’t disappointed by the events programme. Highlights included a marching display from the Band of the RAF Regiment, a PTI led ‘school sports day’ and an Air Cadet drill display. With the fairground rides being a hit with everyone, the children seemed to particularly enjoy the animal zoo and climbing wall.
For youngsters wishing to burn off a little more energy, there was an all-day Soccer Skills event for them to get involved with.
Gliding flights were also available throughout the day, with a high take up from the junior rank cadre, and a Planetarium to further children’s understanding of space.
Flight Lieutenant Claire Hobbs, the Event Organiser, said: “The Committee worked extremely hard in the months leading up to Families’ Day which translated into an event for all of the family to enjoy.
All involved should be justifiably proud of their efforts.”
