Flying Officer David Williams, the Squadron’s Training Officer, said “The open evening gives young people who are interested in the Air Cadets a great chance to find out what activities we offer, meet our current cadets and ask any questions they have. It also gives their parents and guardians a chance to speak to the Squadron’s volunteers and find out more about how the Air Cadets can help build skills that will be useful in all walks of life”.

A recent change in the age that cadets can join the Squadron from 13 to all those who are in Year 8 at school has opened up the Air Cadets to many more young people.
