Hadleigh Country Park: 25th June

We will be returning to Hadleigh Country Park for this one day special event on the site of World War Two ammunition bunkers. The location overlooks the Thames and was an important defensive position with gun emplacements. The site is very popular and the aim of this event is to introduce members of the public to the hobby of amateur radio.
