The Kettle's on at RAF Halton

Published: 04 May 2016

It's time for a new brew at RAF Halton Recruit Training Squadron Tea Bar.

Staff and visitors will soon be able to enjoy a relaxing cuppa in modernised surroundings thanks to a grant from the RAF Charitable Trust.

The Trust has awarded the RTS £8,058 to refurbish the busy area and make it fit for purpose. The bar caters for 170 permanent staff and around 300 external visitors a year, as well as doubling up as a low-level function room. 

The improvements, including new flooring and units, have already been drawn up and approved by permanent staff, who also raised £750 towards the refurb. A further £1500 from the RAF Halton Local Initiative Grant completes the overall cost of £10,308. 

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”
