News reaches us today that Dunstable Downs Kite Festival is no more. This is really sad news. Dunstable Downs is a fabulous place to fly kites, and the festival there has been a long time favourite with club members, whether attending just for a day or for the whole weekend. When the weather is warm and sunny, there can't be many better places to be, and the sound of the swoosh of the gliders coming in to land at the club in the valley below the site will long be in my memory.

The official press release is awaited, but for now it looks like another kite festival has come to an end.
