Young cadets make a splash
6:00pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A YOUTH engagement event on The Green in Devizes onSaturday, October 5, will feature 2397 (Devizes) Squadron Air Training Corps.
The squadron is based at the Cadet Centre in Franklyn Road and is still going strong after 73 years.
The ATC is open to both girls and boys, aged 13 to 20. Whatever you are interested in, there is something new to get stuck into. Activities range from adventure sports (including canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking and climbing), flying, gliding, modelling, first aid and formal drill, as well as opportunities to represent your squadron in sporting events (including rugby, football, netball, hockey and swimming). There is also the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
There are opportunities for parents to help the ATC as a civilian instructor helping directly with the cadets or working in the background as a member of the civilian committee without which the Air Training Corps would not be able to operate.
