About Us

We meet on the third Wednesday of every month at Stranton Social Club, Waldon Street, Hartlepool. TS24 7QJ. It’s on the corner of Waldon¬†Street and Elwick Road, with the entrance door on Waldron Street overlooking Vicarage Gardens. There’s street parking outside and nearby.

Arrive at around 7.45pm for an approximate 8.00pm start. The formal business of the Club is dealt with by our secretary. Those arriving after 8.30pm usually find that they have missed the meeting!

As well as moaning about the weather and other such useful things we have a plan of activities to take place after the formal business of the meeting such as mini glider competitions etc. Look out for information about these being published nearer the dates.

The flying field near Greatham is doing well although winter access is proving poor as usual, check the flying field page for more information.

The Club year runs from 1st January to 31st December. BMFA fee (check BMFA for current fees) and CAA fee are due at the AGM that takes place on the November meeting. Club members BMFA/CAA fees are paid to the BMFA by the Treasurer unless you are a country member (and how could we forget). Club fees (currently £25) will be due in the March meeting but can be paid earlier if you wish.
