Petwood Lincolnshire

Win dinner for two at the Petwood Hotel (worth £70)

This month, you could win a three-course dinner at the Petwood Hotel in Lincolnshire, which was the home of the RAF 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron during the Second World War.

The Petwood is very close to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Visitor Centre, so you could even combine the prize with a visit to see the BBMF’s aircraft. 

Don’t forget that if you are a member of the RAF Memorial Flight Club, you can claim a free tour of the aircraft hangar whenever you visit by showing your membership card. Please make sure you check the opening times on the BBMF Visitor Centre’s website before visiting.
