Linton squadron is back parading face to face. Flight Lieutenant Tennison, the squadrons Commanding Officer, has been particularly impressed with the turn out saying; “It was such a pleasure to see so many cadets return to our first face to face parade night in 14 months. With over 20 cadets in attendance and raring to go, the squadron is well placed to get back to a full program and invite new members to join.”
Over the past year all the cadets have grown, so one of the first major jobs was to re-issue new uniform. To get the cadets working well together again, throughout May the training program has focussed on team building and leadership tasks. This is particularly essential as the summer will see 2523 partake in some public events but also wing wide competitions.
We are settling into our new accommodation at Linton Heights Junior School where we are parading on Monday and Wednesdays. There are several opportunities to join the squadron as a cadet or staff instructor. For cadets you just have to be a minimum of 12 years old and in year 8. Our minimum age for staff is 20, all training is provided.
With shooting and gliding opportunities being announced this month, and with aspirations for some summer camps to go ahead too, we are seeing a meaningful return to activities and new joiners and current cadets alike can look forward to full and varied training opportunities.
It’s good to be back.
