Southwick Revival 2022?
We are delighted to be able to congratulate the winners of the Southwick Revival Spitfire Prize Draw 2021.
1st Prize goes to Graham Buchanan of Southampton who, on receiving the news responded:
“Well I’m absolutely amazed that I’ve won such a prestigious prize as a flight in a magnificent Merlin powered SPITFIRE! Thank you, and the Southwick Revival organisers so much. PS Thank you again and I am still trembling with the excitement of my good fortune!”
2nd Prize goes to Michelle Wiseman of Havant. She offered to let her husband take her place in the Simulator:
“Thank you very much, I look forward to the experience. My husband has declined my offer for him to have the experience. He said as I won it I should be the one who has the fun!” (Ed: What a gentleman!)
3rd Prize won by Reg Sillence of Port Solent who is looking forward to booking his trip for up to six family and friends around the Solent in MGB 81.

Once again the number of visitors grew and the atmosphere was amazing. Just seeing all those smiling happy people enjoying the activities and event which had been laid on, against the unique and unchanged backdrop of the village, gave the organising committee the best reward we could wish for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQj5PGW3vX4
