Like Dee, I'm going to give my renewal for Founding Guardian a miss. 

I've already sent back the raffle tickets with a message "Due to being on a fixed income, I have donated the money to The Dogs Trust"

I seem to remember a conversation with a committee member and the figure of £5k per month was mentioned,money well spent   ::) especially after the Trust blanking the Club Committee with regards to the final flight (never got an answer to that one did we Steve !)

The whole thing stinkss worse than the sewage farm that 558 is now parked next to (and don't get me started on the wasted funds used to buy the Canberra bits)

Andy it's on the yellow bar under the page title. Tho' from what I can see it's for Guardians only, I can't find any info about becoming a Guardian (and why it's under the shopping section I have no idea).

Other than wanting direct control of the finances I can't think why they wanted to challenge the success of the Club. It had bailed them out many times.

Does anyone know on average what the contribution from the Club was per annum?

Hi.

Found out how to access 'Founding Guardians'.
On the home page click 'Shop in Store'.
Click 'Shop Here'.
'Founding Guardians' is on the right side of 'clothing size guide'.
Very small lettering!

well I tried but couldn't find it but thanks for trying (I've actually tried 3 times!). I got as far as clothing eventually but it's not much more that a crappy copy of amazon nowadays. I did consider buying a beanie hat to put on 558's cockpit during the cold winter months but I doubt they could even deliver it now even if they had the right size although I couldn't find the size guide anyway.

thanks for taking the time to tell me though.

Also thanks to Clive for the other link, another that I would never have found (for more obvious reasons). Why on earth isn't there a search function or have I missed that as well. It's all a bit of a shambles and you have to wonder how they can sell anything with this fiasco?

Just scanned the article Smiler had posted the link for.

Someone has got their head up their arse if they think that The Red Arrows could co-exist on a commercial airfield.  They fly upwards of 5 sorties per day during the season work up and even if the display practices were held over another airfield, the circuit  access requirements for the Reds is incompatible with the scheduled commercial operation.

If anyone doubts that, just recall how impossible it has been to get 558 to have taxi runs, as promised to everyone when the decision to drop her on her last legs a few years ago. Not wishing to open any wounds here, but was the memory of a preventable double engine destruction on the active runway a contributory factor on this one?

Andy;
I couldn't find anything either, until 'Microlightdriver' pointed out that the 'Forum' button on the horizontal row ( between 'History/Articles' & 'How to help' ) is labelled incorrectly !
It actually takes you to what used to be the 'Club' page & simply states the following :
