We were invited to visit the Husbands Bosworth Gliding Centre during July where we were warmly welcomed by two volunteer instructors who gave us a fascinating talk on the history of the gliding club and a few of the aspects of gliding, plus a few anecdotes from their own experiences.  Following the talk we went to the cafe for coffee and cake, and an opportunity to try our hand at making our own paper gliders (with varying degrees of success).  We then went out onto the airfield before saying our goodbyes and returning home.  Many thanks to the volunteers at the gliding centre for an insight into this fascinating and exciting hobby.
