Welcome to our Club Events page.

September 1st signals the start of our new club year. As we enter the seventh year of the Fort Purbrook ARC, we hope to build upon a very successful previous year, where during 2017 we relocated our 'Field Weekend' club activities to the western ramparts at the Fort.

Please click on the images to enlarge them.

The new location brings many benefits, with more space for the marquee, multiple antennas and dedicated mains power. Parking is now nearby too, making access much easier. For the winter months we will still be in classroom FP-1, not far from the Fort Reception Office.

A big THANK YOU to all of our club members for your ongoing support.
