RNAS Yeovilton hosted their Air Day on Saturday and Aggie Weston Pastoral Workers, Alan and Hilary were on hand to help keep staff cool. Hilary tells us all about their day.

On Air Day Alan and I spend the morning walking the air station meeting people and being a friendly face to those visiting – approx. 40,000. From about 13.00 we then venture out with our cool box and trolley filled with ice-creams and give them to as many serving personnel we can find who are working hard to make the day go well for all those visiting. This includes “air command” who are located in the fire station, those guarding the entrances and everyone else. This year we gave away nearly 200 ice-creams a welcome by all those in the heat!

It’s a long day but a rewarding one as we spread a little happiness across the station, it’s amazing what an ice-cream and friendly smile can do!

On Tuesday following Air Day we then visited air traffic control with “posh” biscuits and a “thank you” for those working to keep all the aircraft in the sky and the pilots safe
