Barnet Council has awarded the Freedom of the Borough to the RAF Museum to celebrate its diligent preservation of the proud history of our nation’s 100-year-old Royal Air Force.

The RAF marked its centenary in April 2018 and its station which operated as RAF Hendon – which is today part of the borough of Barnet – was globally known as the home of the RAF.

The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Reuben Thompstone, said: “This museum is a wonderful place, with fantastic exhibits. The awarding of the Freedom of the Borough to an organisation is the highest honour that we can bestow. It recognises the close and sustained relationship between our borough and the museum over many years. I am privileged and honoured to help us celebrate that.”
