In 2010, the RAF Association donated £65,000 towards a new welfare facility at RAF Linton-on-Ouse.
The new facility, known to all on the station as the “Maple Leaf”, in honour of the Canadian aircrew who flew from Linton during WW2, brings all the welfare and support services on the station together into one building.
This includes the HIVE, SSAFA, RAF Association, Chaplaincy services, and the station community development and support workers.
It also houses an all-ranks café, children’s indoor and outdoor play facilities, free wi-fi and audio-visual facilities, as well as a new junior ranks club, which replaced an out-dated facility dating back to the 1960s.
