Airfield Liaison Meeting
A meeting of the Wymeswold Airfield Liaison Committee took place at the end of March. The committee are positively working together to reduce the noise levels especially with research into to quietening the exhaust pipes on the super cars. After planning permission was denied for the extension of the bund on the Burton on the Wolds side of the airfield Everyman Racing is now looking towards other measures to reduce the noise levels. These include the reduction of noise from the car exhausts and the erection of a straw bale noise barrier at the Wymeswold side of the racetrack. There are also a number of non-motorised sports taking place on the airfield including triathlons, dance festivals and biking.
Thank you to all the people that have volunteered so far to help with the larger projects for the Washdyke. If you would like to help please let me know and I will pass on your details on to the Washdyke committee. This summer a wild flower meadow is being encouraged to grow between the trees so the grass will be left to grow to allow these flowers to establish. It will then be cut at the end of the season so hopefully we can look forward a lovely wild flower meadow this summer.
