Carew Cheriton Control Tower Group began in 2000 and is run entirely by a group of voluntary members.
We are friendly group and always welcome new members. With a variety of different aspects to get involved in there is something to interest everybody.
You are welcome to donate as much or little of your time as you like. If you are interested in joining us then please do not hesitate to get in touch. Want to see what we do? Then come and see us on a Monday evening at 7:30 or join the working party on a Saturday morning 9:00 – 12:00.
What Do We Do?
School and Group Visits
We have a hard working group of members that look after our school and group visits. Several of our members give talks to the groups while others serve refreshments, staff the shop and look after our guests. All members would agree this is highly rewarding, especially seeing the joy on the Children’s faces when they are dressing up in the military uniforms.
Public Open Days
We currently open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays through the school summer holidays. Our volunteers man the shop and reception desk and staff the control tower giving visitors information.
Our more active members and those with trades carry out general maintenance and projects on the site. From cleaning the buildings, painting, grass mowing and maintaining the upkeep of the site. And of course there is the odd cup of tea thrown in too!
We hold various fund raising events throughout the year such as our very popular Wings Over Carew in August and Bingo evenings throughout the year. These events take considerable time and planning to put on and often require a large amount of man power on the day. If you would like to help or have other ideas then please get in touch.
