On Monday 15th April 2013, cadets and staff from 2152 (North Bristol) Squadron were welcomed to Parliament by Jack Lopresti, the MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke. The Squadron were invited to Westminster by their local MP to celebrate after their Drill team won the National Drill Championships at RAF Halton in November last year, where the team scooped all three drill trophies.
The cadets were treated to a tour of the Houses of Parliament and views of the terrace before departing for the RAF Museum at Hendon. Mr Lopresti said “It was a real pleasure to host 2152 Squadron ATC at the Houses of Parliament. All the cadets looked very smart indeed and I can see why they were the deserved winners of the National Drill Championships. Many congratulations to them all again.”
Flt Lt Jim Brimble, Officer Commanding of 2152 (North Bristol) Squadron ATC, said “The cadets found the morning fascinating and enjoyable – they all appreciated the effort made in hosting them and learning more about the role of the both Houses of Parliament. An amazing experience, being able to talk to our local MP in such relaxed, yet historic surroundings.”
