The deadline for submission of bids for the sale and future use of the former control tower at RAF Greenham Common was midday on the 7th September 2013. We are happy to report that Greenham Parish Council successfully submitted their bid in time.
However, West Berkshire council confirmed (via twitter) that they received a total of 7 bids. So sadly the sale to a private buyer is still not out of the question.
Hopefully West Berkshire Council will look beyond the financial gain and see that it is entrusted to the hands of Greenham Parish Council to ensure its preservation and future public use as an information centre and museum.
