    Dear Sirs/Madam,
    I manage a community friendship group and wonder if you do private tours or talks.

      Dear Jenny,
      Thank you for your interest. We do run a number of events during the year including guided walks. These are usually run as part of Another programme broader such as The Malvern Walking Festival or the Malvern Midsummer. In 2022 we hope to run a special event celebrating the 80th anniversary of Scientists being evacuated to Malvern.
      I will email you separately.

    I have walked my dog around the edge of the Qinetiq (RSRE) for years. However over lockdown I have not walked that way for well over a year.
    I first realized the absolutely anlilation of the site. It’s all gone apart from a huge piece of blast proof concrete. Who is deciding to wipe out our past accomplishments. It’s a travesty.

    Look forward to your reply.

      Hello Caroline,

      100% of ex-RSRE staff would agree with your sentiments!

      The events leading to the ‘travesty’ are now fairly historical. Circa 1990 the government of the day decided it would be cheaper to privatise the work done by its R&D establishments – RSRE being just one of its many. Via, first, the controlling hand of Defence Research Agency (DRA) followed by the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) morphed into QinetiQ plc over a 10 year period. The company began trading in June 2001, its name then replacing DERA.

      QinetiQ is flourishing on the northern half of the old RSRE site, this being one of the company’s three major UK locations. We must hope that this continues, thus maintaining Malvern’s place as a leading centre of the country’s high-tech work.
