To all our Customers


                          Rosemary and Keith Allchin are pleased to announce that as of Sunday the 30th of March 2014 the Flying Fortress will be closed as after running the business for over 25 years we have decided to retire and hopefully have an easier and more normal life. We appreciate that this will come as quite a surprise to many of our customers but if you read our last Landlord’s Letter before Christmas you will see that it was announced then that this was our intention.

                            As it has happened we have received a reasonable offer for the property and have decided to accept it. As the buyers wish to conclude the transaction within this financial year things have moved very quickly. Consequently we have just three weeks to close down the business, find alternative accommodation and get packed up and organise the move. The buyers also have asked that their identity  be protected until final contracts have been signed.

                            In the meantime we would like to thank all  our customers,suppliers and staff, some of some 25 years faithful patronage, and loyal service for their support and helpful advice which was always willingly given although not always taken. I have always said, “You will miss us when we are gone”  but I hope not too much.

                              So in conclusion we would like to wish you all the best for the future and once again say, “Thank you and Goodbye”


                                     Rosemary and Keith
