September 24, 2019 Officers Mess Nomad

Fantastic to see the two tennis courts nearing completion. The tarmac was laid today, just the netting and white lining to complete them. It should be noted that the Tennis Courts were originally part of the Officers Mess complex, now known as Lutyens Court and Godfrey Place. Another fantastic new facility, provided by Bovis today

Footpath rear of Godfrey Place
June 21, 2019 Officers Mess Nomad

Can anyone explain a resident wanted a footpath behind the properties on Godfrey Place, when there is a perfectly good road with a tarmacadam footpath only 20 metres away (and parallel to it)?

Officers Mess – 18th April
April 20, 2016 Officers Mess Nomad

Its unbelievable to think that this decaying building is going to be saved. Most abandoned RAF stations look forlorn and ours will have its beautiful net-georgian Officers Mess refurbished into lovely apartments. I’m tempted to sorely move into one for retirement myself.   Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2018

Officers Mess – 12 July 2015
July 12, 2015 Officers Mess Nomad

Officers Mess Pictures today – 12 July 2015. We still don’t know the future of this building. With the development of the village it is somewhat of an eyesore and no longer tells with the rest of the village. The best solution is demolition and replaced with dwellings similar to those in Smith Barry.
