About

The PTA are raising money to refresh the school`s ageing book stocks, starting with a new reading scheme for the lower years and working up to a full revamp of the school`s library. We have some wonderful donations - please bid generously!

Lots of the items will need to be collected from school in Burrough Green (some can be delivered locally or nationally but it will say if so). Bidders from outside our school community are very welcome. Please be aware that a winning bid commits you to prompt payment and collection.

A Light Aircraft Flight Over Your Home

A4777L52668P1V1.jpg

Flight for two people piloted by Paul Anson in his Cessna 182 from Cambridge Airport out to Burrough Green and nearby villages.

Paul says: "If you live in the area between Newmarket and Haverhill we can find your house and you can take pictures. The equivalent from the Aeroclub is worth £180-260. It can be enjoyed on a clear winter day or may be easier to plan in the spring - Covid 19 rules permitting. I am instrument qualified for bad weather flying but it’ll be no fun in poor conditions for you. We can plan a mutually convenient time but may reschedule if conditions are unfavourable."

The legal bit: This is a non-commercial flight and Paul can receive no compensation for it as a private pilot. Take off and timing is entirely at my discretion for insurance and safety purposes.

Minimum duration will be 30 minutes in the air to see the local area but if it gets bid up high, we can do more and explore a little further so it remains great value.

Flight from Cambridge Airport.

Final bid £155.00
