Visit to RAF Halton

On Friday David was given a tour of RAF Halton by Station Commander James Brayshaw.

During his visit David had a chance to meet the airmen and staff members operating at the base. David also was shown the various facilities around the base including flight simulators, workshops and exercise areas.

The visit allowed David to discuss a variety of issues with staff including support for families and children, youth engagement and welfare for service personnel.

David also talked about the proposed closure of the base in 2020 and how best to mitigate the effects of closure on the local individuals and businesses who have links with the base.
