RAF High Wycombe Annual Reception

On 20th June 2017, RAF High Wycombe invited local industries and key partners to its Officers’ Mess for this year’s Annual Sunset Parade.

Every year, the Station invites local industries to the Officers’ Mess so that we can hear and understand their concerns and issues, but also develop new ties that could in turn benefit either the Station or the local community. The evening starts with arrival drinks and finishes with the Sunset Parade.

This year, the Station was fortunate enough to receive a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which arrived at 8:15pm and completed three flypasts over the crowd.

Flying Officer Gareth Davies, the Parade Commander, said: “It’s an honour to take part in the Sunset Ceremony and it was really great to see so many people attend.”

RAF High Wycombe uses this event as a way to forge new partnerships, reinforce existing ones and see how we can better integrate with the local community. The Station was able to re-affirm ties and say thank you for the support received. We look forward to next year and all that it brings.
