Wallop Reloaded – A great event!

Hey everyone, hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend!

As I am sure you are all aware the Suffolk Kite Festival has
taken a year off. This left many of us a weekend pass going spare so a few of
the Suffolk Kite Flyers decided to redeem their weekend away passes at Middle
Wallop based kite festival, Wallop Reloaded 2011!

A kite event has been taking place at Middle Wallop for many
years. The event takes place on a HUGE airfield. It is approximately 800 acres
and is perfectly cut smooth grass. It is actually the biggest lawn area in
