    The nearby Butley Oyster pub has re-opened after being closed for a few years and visitors may like to pop in for a pint after lunch to socialise.
    The Oyster was a regular watering hole for many FC workers from Rendlesham Forest and also US servicemen from nearby RAF Bentwaters and RAF Wodbridge air bases. Hope to see some of you there (but no talk of the silly Rendlesham Forest so-called UFO crash !)

    Could you let me know when you plan your next visit to Staverton Park? sadly I see I’ve missed the last one. Thanks

      Hello Michael- there are no plans to return in the near future- sorry. However, it may be a possible venue for the ATF summer forum in 2020.
