Finningley ARS, RAF Finninley, & RAF Sandtoft
The Amateur Radio club take our name from RAF Finningley, as our founder members were all serving airmen from the RAFARS club at the base, upon announcement of the bases closure, the Amateurs there found a new club location, on the edge of the former RAF Sandtoft base, and relocated. Sadly very few of the original members are still with us, but we continue to remember our roots.
On site we have a memorial dedicated to the service men & women from RAF Sandtoft. The memorial has been on site for a number of years now, and it had fell in to a state of disrepair, in 2018 the club members, with the help of some friends, and local sponsors, helped to build the fabulous new stone memorial.
Also we have a Rememberance book dedicated to the service men & women from RAF Sandtoft. This was compiled by our friend, Pat Horton in 2016. A lot of reaserch and work went in to producing the excellent insight to Sandtoft’s past for everyone to see.
Anyone is welcome to come and view the Memorial and Rememberance Book on any of our club meetings, or if needed we can open for you, just get in touch with us.
