RAF Halton Families Day

The RAF Halton Families Day, which takes place every two years, is an opportunity for the Station to give something back to the families who provide such wonderful support to its’ personnel throughout their time at RAF Halton. Despite a very rainy day, the Station community of RAF, RN, Army Regulars, Reserves, Civil Service, Contractors and families were treated to an afternoon of family entertainment.

While the weather was not good enough for the air displays and some of the Queen’s Birthday fly past aircraft that were booked, the community enjoyed performances by the RAF Halton Pipes and Drums band, the Military Wives Choir, birds of prey displays and a model aircraft display in addition to motor stands which included Ferraris, Harley Davidson motorcycles and vintage motors.

The RAF Police Dogs provided a dynamic display along with other sideshows and events which entertained everyone and raised hundreds of pounds for charity.

Wing Commander Ray Morley, event organiser, said: “The families’ day was a great success for hundreds of visitors, despite the constant rain and lack of flying. This is an appropriate reflection of the hard work of the organising committee, for which the Station is very grateful”.
