Hornsea Air Cadets to host open evening

Hornsea Air Cadets have enjoyed a busy summer of activities and are looking to welcome potential new recruits at an open evening next week.

Beginning the summer holidays at Hornsea Carnival, the civilian committee manned a stand and shared more information about Hornsea Air Cadets, supported by retired Air Commodore Chris Brazier.

Summer activities included a squadron trip to Flamingo Land, swimming and Rebound. Corporal Ayrton and Cadet Whitehead attended a week-long camp at Altcar Training Centre, where they undertook a variety of activities including clay pigeon shooting, leadership exercises, first aid training and water sports.

At the end of August, Cadets Whitehead, Marshall and Close had the opportunity to glide at RAF Syerston near Newark. Each cadet had the chance to take the controls and enjoy gliding over the Nottinghamshire countryside.

A trip to RAF Waddington is set for October, and as they begin their autumn programme, the open evening will take place on Wednesday, October 19.

Hornsea Air Cadets is open for young people aged between 12 and 19. They meet on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. They are also very keen to recruit more adult volunteers either as uniformed or civilian staff to support the running of the squadron and oversee the activities undertaken.
