YOUNG, bored and would like something exciting to do? Bideford Air Cadets are happy to welcome new members to share in their wide range of activities.

The 20 (Bideford) Squadron Air Training Corps, to give them their full name, meet in their hall in King George V Field off Park Lane, Bideford, on Monday and Friday nights.

Cadets enjoy a wide range of activities, with a strong link to the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

Other activities include glider flying from the airfield at Chivenor, shooting and summer expeditions and exercises on Braunton Burrows, Exmoor and Dartmoor.
