In 2023 Deanland was able to hold its first Charity Breakfast Fly-In since Covid. Over 120 full English breakfasts were served along with tea, coffee and cake. Thanks to the generosity of the Deanland residents and guests we raised £2,586.10. Pictured are Charles Price and Dave Ridley handing over the cheque to Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust at Redhill aerodrome. Our sincere thanks you to all those who made this donation possible.
From January 2021 until the end of 2023 Deanland airfield and its residents have funded the planting of over 17,500 trees. These trees are planted to 110% off-set the carbon produced by flights made from the airfield. In 2023 over 4,000 trees and shrubs have been planted on the airfield, these include Alder, Aspen, Crab Apple, Birch, Field Maple, Goat Willow, Hornbeam, Common Oak, Scots Pine, Silver Birch, Sweet Chestnut, Walnut, Wild Cherry, Blackthorne, Dog Rose, Dogwood, Holly and Hazel.
Thank you to all our generous residents for their on-going support of our scheme.
