To bring back and fund the annual display by the Red Arrows during the Fowey Royal Regatta.  For almost 30 years the flying display by the RAF Red Arrows display team has been a highlight of the week.  Thousands of people flock to Fowey to watch the amazing display, it brings together all the people of our disparate community to watch and creates childhood memories to treasure.  Sadly in 2014 the display was discountinued due to new safety regulations and the impact on our week was massive and it's loss was felt throughout the area.  In 2016 the Harbour Commissioners stepped up and offered the services of the Harbour Master and his small team to work to bring back the display.  This has succeeded and  a new style display which conforms to the safety rules is planned for 2017.  All we need now is the funding to support it and hence our appeal.
