Croydon Airport as it celebrates £10,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant
24/03/2015 16:28:00


The Croydon Airport Society has been awarded £10,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to support their new project: ‘Revealing the Hidden Heritage of Croydon Airport’.

The Society intends to use the cash to recruit and train volunteers to meet growing demand at the Airport Visitor Centre, help keep it open and research the society’s extensive archives, making them more accessible through new displays and a developing a comprehensive website.

Croydon Airport was Britain’s first major international airport and during the early twentieth century was a hotbed for record-breaking flights and technical innovation, laying the foundations of today’s worldwide air transport network. Its Grade II listed airport terminal, built in 1928, was a global first and features the world’s oldest air traffic control tower.

There are a wide range of opportunities for those wishing to volunteer at the Airport. If you would like to find out more about the roles available, please contact the project co-ordinator volcoordcas@gmail.com and they’d be more than happy to help.
