It’s only by keeping our heritage alive that we can shape the future.” WO Roberts said the centre, which would have a garden of remembrance alongside it, would provide a fitting tribute to all ex and serving members of the RAF who had been also contain an interactive learning facility, which has been created by archiving more than 15,000 photographs and documents.
