Maintenance for the Spitfire

Spitfire Maintenance 2014
John & Martin from Rutland Willows remove the Spitfire for maintenance

The Spitfire sculpture on the bypass is heading to the Rutland Willows workshop for a couple of weeks for some vital maintenance.

The Spitfire is in a vulnerable spot weather-wise and suffers all the elements through the year – John Shone and Martin Keeley will be working on the sculpture which, this year, requires significant repair.

Thanks to all who have donated to Oakham In Bloom to support this project, in particular the RAF Association who have again donated to the Spitfire project to enable us to continue the maintenance this year.
