Breakfast at Graham Moss and tour to Glenn James’ airplane collection

1 October, 2023

On Sunday 1st October, one of the committee’s members Grant Charlesworth-Jones, supported by committee members Alex Aldous and Phil Wood, has lined up an exceptional tour.

At 9.30, we will gather at the home of Graham Moss (M ’69-’73), Brookgate Hall, Plealey, SY5 0UY for breakfast rolls and tea/coffee. Graham is a very generous host and also has a fantastic collection of classic British sports cars which he will be very pleased to share with you.

Sometime after 10.00, we shall depart for a touring route of some 20 miles to Sleap (pronounced “Slape”) airfield which is one of the busiest general aviation fields in the country, with many different types of private aircraft flying in and out. We will be driving on interesting roads with places of note along the way – take it at your own pace.

At Sleap we will have a hosted tour of a private collection of working war planes: https://www.flythedream.co.uk/ and owner Glenn James, a serial entrepreneur and former business associate of Lord Sugar, will personally show us around his working collection; he will be able to answer all of your questions and yes, you will be able to sit in the planes!

A hot buffet lunch will be provided there at around 13.00 and you can either enjoy the setting for as long as you wish or have your food to take away so that you can get on your way home.

As you know, the SDC is financially self-sufficient and we don’t have any subscriptions so there will be a club contribution of £25 per person coming to this event. Please will you pay your contribution to Grant Charlesworth-Jones on the day. If you would like to come to the Sunday event, please email Grant at grant@ryminster.com
