VISITORS enjoyed a trip back in time at the RAF Burtonwood Heritage Centre’s Stars and Stripes nostalgia weekend.

Members of the public descended on Gulliver's World in Old Hall to take part in the annual festival to commemorate the personnel who were stationed at the base from 1940 to 1993. 

To celebrate the history of RAF Burtonwood there were static displays, memorabilia, vintage stalls and military and emergency services vehicles on display.

On the Saturday night, there was also a Rock ‘n’ Jive Dance.

Speaking ahead of the festival, John Cotterill, from RAF Burtonwood Heritage Centre, said: “We can’t wait to welcome our families over the weekend – it’s the ideal way to pay tribute to those who served here.

“RAF Burtonwood is such a huge part of Warrington’s history – thousands of American servicemen married local girls so it’s a fantastic get-together for so many people. 

“It’s also a great way for children and adults alike to get a real glimpse into wartime Warrington.”
