Thank you all for your kind responses. We will endeavour to work on the bits that didn't work as well as others for all future events here at Lyneham. A big thank you from myself to all those who made the day run as smoothly as it did: as you can imagine, there was a huge amount of effort before, during and after the event to make it a success. Thank you to all the REME family, local supporters and everyone else who attended. Maj Rix

********* IMPORTANT INFORMATION **********

Good morning,

I hope this message finds you well and that you all are looking forward to the REME75 Celebrations that are taking place on Sat 17 Jun 17. Below are a few snippets of information that will hopefully alleviate any concerns or questions that you may have. Please can I ask that you take the time to read this before contacting the Organisers, especially as we enter the busy period of setting up for the event. For timings throughout the day, please visit the REME75 page REME75.

FAQ

Can I bring my dog?

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on the day contrary to the Craftsman article in the Jun 17 edition. This is due to the large number of people now expected on the day.

What should I wear?

Military personnel not taking part in the event are to wear civilian clothing. The evening event is Party in the Park which is being held on the rugby pitches, suitable footwear is required for uneven surfaces. No flip flops.

Which entrances do I use?

Those attending on foot will gain access through the main MOD Lyneham gate. Those who are arriving by car and wish to park for the day are to use the A site or C site entrances – these will be signposted on arrival in to Lyneham from Royal Wootton Bassett and Calne.

How do I change my ticket allocation?

Simply log back on to www.eventleaf.com/REME75 using your registration email address and amend your required allocation.

Security

Please be aware that all personnel obtaining entry in to MOD Lyneham will have their personal belongings searched due to the current security climate. All cars will enter MOD Lyneham via checkpoints and Vehicle Control Points so that they can also be searched. All the security measures that have been put in place are for the safety of everyone attending, please be patient.

Tickets

Attendees are to ensure that they have photographic ID, children can be vouched for by their parents and do not require ID. If you have booked multiple tickets as a group then please ensure that the named person on the ticket is present on entry, has valid ID and can vouch for those in their party. You are not required to print the ticket out numerous times for all members of your party.

Timings

The open day begins at 0930hrs with a plethora of activity for all the family to enjoy. The Military Parade will be one of the highlights of the day for many; those attending this event are asked to be seated by 1320hrs. At 1600hrs, focus will switch to the Party in the Park event which will continue to approximately 2230hrs when the firework display will bring the day to a close.

Refreshments

All military feeding messes are closed to all personnel, however a food village is available where refreshments can be purchased throughout the day. No alcohol is to be consumed before 1500hrs. All those attending the Party in the Park are encouraged to bring a picnic with them whilst they enjoy the entertainment. Feel free to bring garden chairs and a blanket to enhance your comfort and enjoyment.

Alcohol Policy

It is imperative that all adults have photographic ID as the vendors have been told to check for underage drinking and will not serve who they deem U25 without ID. This measure is in place to minimise the risk to those attending on the day and to keep everyone safe. All attendees are also politely asked to refrain from drinking alcohol until after the Parade has finished at approximately 1500hrs.

Parking

As you pass through Royal Wootton Bassett or Calne (depending where you are travelling from) you will pick up signs for vehicle parking. On arrival you will be directed by the Event staff where to park your vehicle; please mention to one of the marshals if you require disabled parking so that you can be directed to the appropriate area.

The Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers Parachute Display Team will be performing at the Lyneham Open Day on June 17th, and we can't wait!

The Display Team were formed in the late 1960’s and are still going strong to this day.The team is made up from volunteers across the REME cap badge who each have a full time military role. Coming together to train throughout the year, they conduct displays at national and local events just like Lyneham's Open Day for REME75.

During the display, the team will exit the aircraft with smoke canisters attached, which will allow spectators to follow the excitement as each parachutist accelerates up to 130mph before safely opening their parachutes. The display team will then thrill the crowd with their skill and accuracy as they land their parachutes within the arena. Following a safe landing, the team will form up to greet the audience and give a final salute!

Tickets need to be reserved for the day though, so get in while you can! - http://www.eventleaf.com/reme75

Gather a team or band together on the day! Really good fun and not painful! Embrace your inner Katniss Everdeen 😁
