    Strips nr Stevenage / Coventry????

    Posted something on the BMAA forum but now they've calmed the bickering down there's only the occasional bit of tumbleweed to watch float by. So repeating here.

    I'm having to travel round for meetings a bit at the moment and navigating the M25 etc during rush hour is no joy so given nice weather I'm looking to fly from home instead.

    Question is.. where to..
    I have to go to Stevenage - I see Graveley airfield - anyone know the contact details?
    Also Ansty / Walsgrave (NE Coventry) - any strips near there?

    Ta in advance.
