Congratulations to Mike and Amie and Tim and Sally. Mike and Tim used our suggestion of the Red Lion at Stodmarsh as the venue for his special marriage proposal.
Recommended in the Times Online, the Red Lion in an ancient Kent villlage, has great food, an eccentric landlord and is right next-door to a nature reserve, which offers both a romantic setting and an easy spot for us to locate the happy couple! It's also the cheapest spot for a proposal in the country, as it's only minutes away from the airfield and incurs only the basic £295+VAT charge for the proposal flight and the special sheet banner that goes with it.
There's another advantage to this and similar spots close to Canterbury outside the summer months, in that on a day like today, with patches of very low cloud about, we are in line of sight with the area we will be flying over and the risk of disappointment as a result of unpredictable autumn and winter weather is almost ruled-out.
