BBC coverage and a new Youtube video...

You may have heard us on BBC Radio Devon this morning, talking about the campaign to save Winkleigh Control Tower.  There is another piece scheduled to go out later today on the Pippa Quelch show between 17:00-19:00.

Also, keep an eye on the BBC tonight at about 6:30pm, as BBC Spotlight also came out to the tower today to talk about the tower and the campaign to save it.

Finally, we've uploaded another video to Youtube.  This one features Winkleigh resident Frank Pidgeon talking about his memoires of RAF Winkleigh and some of the antics that the personnel stationed there got up to!  The video can be found at https://youtu.be/_CxnevziArk

We'll keep you updated of any and all changes!
