Aspen Park spitfire launch 2

CALA Homes is inviting locals in Haddenham and the surrounding area to step back in time and join them at its 'Aspen Park' (Haddenham Airfield) development for a special 1940s Spitfire Spectacular.

Taking place on Saturday 28th April from 12.30pm to 3.30pm, the free of charge vintage extravaganza will be a great day out for all the family with cream teas, ice cream, live music from a 40s duo and a memorable display by a WWII Spitfire at 2.15pm.

'Aspen Park', on Pegasus Way, is situated on the former Haddenham airfield site, which was originally a Second World War airfield known as RAF Thame. To celebrate the heritage of the site, CALA is officially launching its brand new collection of three to five-bedroom homes with this 1940s themed community event.

Like many towns and villages, a number of Haddenham residents fought and died during the First and Second World Wars and are remembered on the War Memorial in the centre of the village. There are also nine registered war graves in St Mary's Church in Haddenham, one of which is Flying Officer Harold Milne Aspen. Harold served in the Royal Air Force 53rd Squadron during World War II and was killed in action on 13th August 1940, aged 45. The name Aspen Park was chosen in his honour and in memory of all those from Haddenham who gave their lives for their country.

Whilst enjoying all of the entertainment on offer, visitors will also be able to take a tour of the three brand new four-bedroom showhomes and find out more about the homes available. Every child who visits will also receive a balsa wooden aeroplane to take home with them as a memento of the day.
