heres the reply I got from the Caa and the RAF

It would apear that a air display is not a unusual activity if it has helicopters and jets

but if you are going to have a kite flying day you need to inform them (mr NOTAM that is)

Gary, Colin,

NOTAM H2882 covers this event for Friday the 8th. The Saturday and Sunday only had a SAR Seaking doing a display. This is not considered unusual aerial activity there for no NOTAM was placed.

Kind Regards,
