Two headteachers were ‘blown away’ by the range and scale of activities undertaken by cadets from 2328 (Bishops Cleeve) Squadron. The Guests of Honour at the Squadron’s recent Annual Presentation Night were Wing Commander Rossi RAF, Head of Human Resources for the RAF in the South of England, and the headteachers of Bishops Cleeve and Winchcombe Secondary Schools, which most of the cadets attend.
The cadets highlighted the fast growing unit’s achievements, including Wing sport participation and its commitment to community support activities. Over 90 parents and friends of the Squadron turned out to hear cadets’ presentations and see videos of the year’s activities. For 2328 Squadron, by far the most popular activities of the year were the visit to RAF Hendon as well as the ‘Kip in a Ship’ on board HMS Belfast in London to celebrate the ATC’s 75th Anniversary.
The Presentation Night concluded with the Chair of Cheltenham Rotary Club generously presenting a cheque for £500 to enable the unit to purchase new radio communications equipment for cadet training.
