"I am thrilled to be invited to join with this project; it is so refreshing to work with people driven by a sense of community and history rather than commercial gain. Whilst, as an RAF dependent teenager living at Henlow Camp I had school friends living in Shortstown and of course like most folk in Bedford am familiar with the airship sheds. I had no idea of the wealth of history attached to the village which I have found quite fascinating. All credit to Jane and Shortstown Heritage for their determination and hard work to date; we have a way to go yet but as a team focused on delivery in 2017 we can leave a little imprint on the history of Shortstown."
