Members may wish to consider signing this e-petition
about St George's Chapel at Biggin Hill.  More details below:

Please Don't Close St. George's RAF Chapel of Remembrance Biggin Hill

Responsible department: Ministry of Defence

By March 2016,the Royal Air Force/Ministry of Defence are withdrawing all support from the Chapel. If no one or group takes on the responsibility of this magnificent Memorial Chapel, it will be closed without access to the public or church services.

This Chapel was built as a Memorial to Aircrew, who had their lives taken in World War ll, they fought and they died. We, today, have the freedom to forget.

Apparently (I didn't see/hear it), at PMQs today, the PM was asked if the RAF chapel at Biggin Hill would be preserved; his response "Yes, the Battle of Britain was one of the most important events in history. The government will do whatever it takes to protect it"

We'll see!
