And in answer to that old chesnut -'no' cadets do not have to go on to a career in the RAF afterwards, unless that is what they want.

CI Kieren Hewins said: "The Air Cadets offer a diverse range of activities for boys and girls. Air Cadets can provide anything from basic life skills to training on how to fire a rifle. What's more, the Air Cadets can offer the tasks also associated with other local cadet forces, as well as tasks unique to Air Cadets."

There is an open invitation to give the Air Cadets a try. If it's not for you, then you don't have to go again. But if it is, there will be a warm welcome to the team.

Just pop in on a Monday night 7.00-9.30pm or Friday night 7.30-10.00pm or call 07929 924039 for more details.
