Congratulations to Bob Whitehouse who this month celebrates 50 years as a tenant at the airfield – the longest of anyone.
The second tenant on the site, Bob remembers the early days when there was no door on his building, no water and no electricity. One might wonder why he came here! He’s certainly seen a few changes since he arrived. The first owner he recalls had only one leg while the first manager (who was also the Chief Flying Instructor) only had one eye.
Bob’s gearbox maintenance business, which he runs with his son Colin, is still going strong.
It’s also Bob’s birthday today (10th April), so a Happy Birthday to him from all of us.
