Default The Bluebird Meet, 2nd July 2022



We’re delighted to formally announce the Bluebird Meet, which will take place on Saturday 2nd July 2022 at East Kirkby Aviation Heritage Centre in Lincolnshire.

The Bluebird meet takes places within the Mid Lincs Rover Club, who have invited club members to come along and enjoy a day out Gates open at 10am with an entrance fee of £10 per car. Please ensure you can make the payment in cash on entry.

Members of the club are invited to come along and enjoy a day celebrating the life of Debbie Stearman, who sadly passed away at the end of November last year. Debs and her infectious enthusiasm are very much missed, and her partner Andy Brown, who we all know as Trikey, will be at the meet to remember Debs.

What’s Happening?
The Aviation Centre at East Kirkby is a time capsule of the dark days of the Second World War, when countries near and far came together to liberate those forced to live under tyranny. The award-winning exhibits at the Centre include:
  • A unique collection of Bomber Command vehicles
  • See the restored Control Tower in its original operational condition
  • Walk round a functioning hangar and see restoration work in progress
  • Visit the Memorial Chapel, containing the names of all 848 crew and ground staff lost at East Kirkby
  • Eat and shop at the NAAFI, a wartime building filled with photos and memorabilia

You will also get to watch the Lancaster bomber NX611 ‘Just Jane’ make taxi runs (at least 2 will take place)

You are welcome to bring your own food and refreshments. There is a NAFFI café and ice-cream stall on site which will be open if you feel peckish.

Spares Swap-O-Rama
Meets are of course a great place to meet other members and swap or buy those tricky to find parts. If you have a few spare parts which you wish to move on to other members, you can bring along up to 10 items to sell or exchange. If you have more than 10, or wish to set up a trade stall, please contact Dave_Lincs for further details.

How to Get There
The meet location details are:
East Kirkby Aviation Centre
East Kirkby Airfield, Nr Spilsby, Lincolnshire PE23 4DE

If you’re looking to stay over, the area has a large choice of hotels, B&Bs and campsites available. Here’s a list compiled by the Aviation Centre for you to try.

Registering
As payment is on the day at the meet, we would like to have a good idea of numbers to make sure we allocate plenty of space for all. So please put your name below if you are coming along and we will do our best to have a turnout to celebrate the like of a very special Lady who ment so much to so many

RIP Deb/Bluebird x

Aye, sounds good, as its over 100 miles for us can you recommend B&B's, premier inn etc close by? that would make it more viable for those travelling long distances
