A crowd of pupils, staff and parents from Levens C of E Primary School greeted Mr Farron and couldn’t wait to give him a good starting push as he jumped on board the runway seat!

The new Aerial Runway has been purchased and installed thanks to the fantastic efforts of the Levens Playing Fields Committee along with the many local businesses and villagers who reached their fundraising target by organising numerous events & activities.
