Gathering of Moths, RAF Henlow, 12 Aug 2018

Due to circumstances beyond our control the deHMC Gathering of Moths 2018 will not take place at Old Warden aerodrome but at nearby RAF Henlow 12 August 2018 by kind permission of the Station Commander and co-operation of the Airfield Manager.

This will mean, unfortunately, that the event will not be open to the general public. Arrangements will be made for deHMC members for entry who will have to book in advance and these will be communicated to members in due course. Please ensure you are on the deHMC mailing list by email or surface mail.

Turning up on the day and showing a deHMC membership card will not gain you entry.

All enquiries regarding the above should be directed to the Club dhmoth@dhmothclub.co.uk and not to this forum.

This is always a great pity that the Public can't visit an event . Kudos to OC. RAF Henlow for offering the facility, but I'm struggling to see what the Public Access issue is? It's not like they store ICBM's there, or that MI6 have evidence of it being in the top 1000 terrorist targets :wink:
Surely a simple Gate Fee & ID. scheme put in place using Private security organisation could work? ( funded by the cost of entry naturally)
But then you have to add Facilities, thunderboxes, barriers, PA., H & S., CAA approval & Mega Insurance. You're right, best make it non-public. :dizzy:

That is really unfortunate, I always very much enjoyed that event! :sad:

As you haven't mentioned what date it was supposed to be at OW, please could you confirm that this is nothing to do with the Charity Flying Moth event scheduled for OW on 23/24 June.

That's a point. I was assuming that they were the same event?

Sorry for the delay in replying, thank you for the prompt by PM! Always useful.

It was to be the 12 Aug at OW and now it is 12 Aug at RAF Henlow. This has nothing to do with the Charity Flying Weekend which will still take place at OW on 23/24 Jun. Apologies for any confusion.

We very much regret having to move the event from OW this year but it was forced upon us by circumstances. We have every intention of returning to Old Warden in 2019. We are very grateful for the OC RAF Henlow and the Airfield Manager for accommodating us at Henlow.
