Wel­fare homes at RAF base

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Wel­fare fa­cil­i­ties for per­son­nel at Royal Air Force Wit­ter­ing took an­other step for­ward with the open­ing of the Sta­tion’s third wel­come house. RAF Wit­ter­ing’s wel­come houses are ex­tra ser­vice ac­com­mo­da­tion for per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies when­ever the need arises. The houses could be used by non-res­i­dent par­ents to visit chil­dren at the base, or by close fam­ily in the event of be- reave­ment or se­ri­ous ill­ness. War­rant Of­fi­cer Richard Drain is the se­nior of­fi­cer for the wel­come houses and he said: “We did a lot of work to get this house ready, but it’s been well worth­while. The house is fin­ished to a high stan­dard and we can com­fort­ably sleep six peo­ple here; if we have a fam­ily or per­son­nel in need of wel­fare ac­com­mo­da­tion, this just the ticket.”
