#proudsgtmoment Cadets from Trent and S&E Mids Wings were in Derby this afternoon to celebrate the centenary of the formation of the @RoyalAirForce! All cadets did very well, I am very proud of @1082SQNATC cadets who were very well turned out! @ComdtAC @carolvorders @adamfowleruk
We are having an open evening tonight! Details on our public Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/1082BrimingtonSquadronAirCadets
Our open evenings are designed to showcase all our activities. Cadets who have done these activities themselves will be present on each stand to talk about their experiences. Staff will also be available to answer any questions from parents.
The open evening starts at 7:30 pm at our Squadron building at 26a Chesterfield Road, Brimington, S43 1AD, this is down the footpath opposite St Michael’s Nursing Home and Riverside Motors.
Next Monday 26th March will be the first night of our new intake, from 7 pm until 9.30 pm.
We operate only two intakes a year. This allows potential new cadets to start in one group, at the same time, and helps new starters form friendships quicker. From our last intake 8 out of 9 cadets have stayed on as a result of starting together.
We realise it is Easter time and many people may be on holiday. There is a grace period of two weeks to allow those who are on holiday to still join in this intake. Please do contact the Squadron if you need to do this though so we can plan accordingly.
We hope to see you all there tonight!
A Commanding Officer’s view of the work your Squadron has done over the last year…
We’ve added a new theme, stories, and imagery to our website!
Congratulations to our own Sgt Esther Taylor RAFAC, who has completed her residential training, marking the end of her probationary period and is set to return to Squadron as a full Sergeant.
The Squadron’s new logo was designed by our cadets during a competition won by Cdt Kara Hawkins (Logo Design) and Cdt Cpl Danny Henman (Motto creation).
Our cadets will show you what they have been doing over the last year. You get chance to meet them and talk about what it is we do.
There will be many displays and talks about our activities. Staff will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
The Squadron will be open from 1900 until 2100 for you to visit. Drop in any time within those hours. A look around and chat should take 20-30 minutes.
We hope to see you all there!!!
If you can’t make it that night, don’t worry! You can turn up any Monday or Wednesday in September at 1900 and see what it is we do. There is no requirement to join on your first visit. Please do bring a parent though to fill out a consent form for the night.
