Recruiting new Air Cadets

Air Cadets seeking new recruits

Newark and District Air Cadets are holding an open evening to recruit more members. Boys and girls age 12 and above and in year 8 or over, along with their parents, are encouraged to come along and find out more about joining this active group.

Air Cadet Corporal George Harrison said, “We meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening and there is something happening most weekends. We get to go flying and gliding, take part in the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme, go on adventure training weekends and, in school holidays, week long camps as well as taking part in parades on occasions like Remembrance Sunday. On top of all this we meet new friends and get to have fun”.

Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Martin Derbyshire added “I started as an Air Cadet and am delighted to now have the honour of leading the group and I want to see more young people have the same opportunities for travel, adventure and making friends for life that I had”.

The open evening takes place at the Cadet Centre, Sherwood Avenue, Newark on Tuesday 20 March at 7.30pm. There is no need to book but more information is available by e-mailing
