On Friday 20 July G-Forces celebrated the opening of their new purpose built offices in Bearsted with a display from Kent’s very own Mark IX Spitfire, ‘The Spirit of Kent’ as well as a Stampe Bi-plane.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony was performed by honorary guests Jimmy Corbin, Maidstone’s last surviving Battle of Britain pilot together with Peter Ayerst and Rodney Scrase, fellow World War II veteran Spitfire pilots.
G-Forces chose to support the Biggin Hill Battle Of Britain Supporters’ Club and Gordon Wright, their Chairman, was presented with a cheque for £3,500. The money was raised from various fundraising activities that G-Forces’ staff had undertaken over the last 3 months including the auctioning of original artwork, signed by the guests of honour.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for coming and making the day so special.
