Make a kite.

Instruction can be downloaded here 

Run a workshop with young people from the many resources here on

Fly Kites Not Drones is a campaign which came from young people in Afghanistan who told us that the threat of armed drones were now making the beautiful blue skies a fearful sight for Afghan children.  Drones work best on clear days where clouds do not obscure the cameras fitted on them, clear days are also considered perfect for kite flying.

The base is after Bracebridge Heath and before the village of Waddington on a straight stretch of road, the A607. The base is off to the left down a short track.
