Introduction to the Airport Pages

With the development of the “London Southend Airport” we are aware that, here on the southern boundary of Rochford District, we have a resource that many of our readers have already made use of, and many more are likely to in the years to come. With that in mind we considered it well worth while to give over space to both the airport itself and the things happening here.

It is very easy, as we have learnt time and again here at Rochford Life, to be unaware of things right under our noses, and so to continue our “bringing the community to the community” we add these pages.
Below is a map of the new airport area. Scroll down below that to odds and ends of ‘airport information to stir your interest. Links to other pages are above.
