RAF Halton Annual Reception - 2018

Jane Reilly  |  Published: May 25th 2018

This year’s Annual Reception fell on a cool but bright evening where many of our neighbours and supporters were hosted by a wide range of Station personnel to continue to build the strong relationships that we have with our local community.

Within our Centenary year there was the opportunity to give guests a different experience to what they have had previously. Some of the Servicemen Awaiting Trade Training were given the opportunity to research and present topics to the guests, notably that of #RAF100 and RAF Halton Heritage. This addition was appreciated by all those in attendance and formed a talking point for the evening.

In his speech to the guests, Group Captain James Brayshaw, Station Commander said: “I am fortunate to have a strong vibrant team that is highly motivated to continue to play its part in the community.  Equally, we are all hugely grateful for your support and hope that this much appreciated patronage endures.”

The annual event is an excellent opportunity for the Station to thank all the key people from across the wider community for their continued support and for enabling RAF Halton to carry out its important role of training for Defence.

Local counsellor Patricia Birchley, who has attended the event previously said: “It was, as always, a wonderful occasion to meet members of the Armed Forces.”
