The Friends of Roundhay Park invite you to a special presentation!
Rowland Ding, Yorkshire Aviator (1885-1917): His Life and Achievements.
Rowland Ding was the chief test pilot for Blackburn Aircraft Co on Roundhay road. He was a local hero, often flying from the Soldiers’ Field, but tragically dying in an accident nearby. In this centenary year of his death, we’re privileged to have not one, but two grandsons to speak about their respective grandfathers. Robert Blackburn and Rowland Burley will give an illustrated presentation and talk about their grandfathers’ achievements.
Sunday 9th July, 1pm at Roundhay School LS8 1ND -entry, including car park, through the main entrance, Old Park Road.
Admission £5, under 19’s free. Pay on the door, or in advance via www.forp.org
