The Westland 100 website will be launched in the coming months. If you’re one of the editors on the site, please log in here.
Past and present employees of Westland Helicopters (now AgustaWestland), together with their family and friends, are being asked to share their memories of working at the Yeovil factory for a project to mark 100 years of the aircraft manufacturer in Yeovil.
Radio Ninesprings – Yeovil’s new community radio station – has been awarded £45,000 funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a permanent spoken archive of Westland by recording interviews with people discussing their memories of the factory from 1915 to the present day. A film about the 100 year of history of Westland will be made by students at Yeovil College.
Anyone who would like to be interviewed about Westland, has any cine film of Westland built aircraft or, to volunteer for the project, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or, write to: ‘Yeovil’s Magnificent Flying Machines’, E216, Yeovil College, Mudford Road, Yeovil BA21 4DR.
