Tak­ing the plunge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

IF you want to take to the skies over Peter­bor­ough, then parachutist John Mea­cock is your man.

As seen in to­day’s pic­ture, he would reg­u­larly or­gan­ise sky­dives and parachute jumps from a flight cen­tre just out­side Peter­bor­ough.

My records state that John started the Peter­bor­ough Parachute Club in 1971, and it is still go­ing strong at its Sibson base.

John was Bri­tish cham­pion for five years and served for ten years on the Bri­tish Parachute As­so­ci­a­tion coun­cil, in­clud­ing three years as chair­man.

Do you have any mem­o­ries of tak­ing to the skies over Wans­ford?

Per­haps you were one of John’s first pupils? Maybe you still work with John now?

Any in­for­ma­tion you have please send it in to me us­ing the con­tacts be­low.
