Young cadets from 2185(Wareham)Sqn and 2185(Swanage)DF wanted to help RAFA Wings Appeal. They provided a Bag Packing service in the Wareham Sainsbury’s Local, and raised £375 for four hours work.
Lord Lieutenant for Dorset Mr Alistair Campbell attended 2185 (Wareham) Sqn to his cadet’s unit. Whilst on the squadron he presented a Gold DEAS Award to the Cadet Flight Sgt Alec Cottrell, Lord Lieutenants ATC Cadet, and a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to Sgt (ATC) Martin Hall. The Welfare Committee provided refreshments and parents and other guests attended the evening.
A massive well done to all cadets who attended the Regional swimming on Wednesday 5th October, We came away with winning the Senior Boys and the Senior Girls competition. Dorset & Wilts went on to win the overall competition, with many of our cadets getting selected for the region team. Thank you to all staff that helped and made this possible.
