The Deal Air Cadets (formally known as 2235 Deal Squadron ATC) are the local branch of a UK wide cadet force that is sponsored by the RAF. It is open for anyone between 14 and 20 years of age and provides amazing experiences such as adventure training, trips abroad, and yes – flight experience.
I was honoured to be asked to attend today's presentation ceremony, which celebrated individual and group successes in 2012. The cadets were fantastic, and I hope even more young people will think about joining – it is great fun and there was a real sense of camaraderie within the group.
Also attending were the local Mayors and proud parents, who were all entertained by the Cadet band - pictured. What a brilliant evening!
