October was great for 1208 (Warsop) Squadron, with at least 11 new recruits joining at the beginning of the month and preparations in place to begin training for Remembrance events such as uniform inspections and prepping nights, foot and banner drill practice.
Cadets will be out poppy-selling to raise funds for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, as well as going out to help the community with their shopping while raising some much-needed funds for the Squadron so it can continue to support young people!
As well as welcoming new cadets, the Squadron also welcomed a new Officer In Command (OIC), Pilot Officer Tony Eaton RAFAC. Tony joined at the start of October, and he has settled into the role very well! The group is sad to be saying goodbye to Flight Lieutenant Taylor after the handover process has ended but wish to thank her for all her work.
With Christmas just around the corner, cadets are preparing for the end of 2023 and staff are coming up with fresh ideas to keep our young people engaged, developing their citizenship as well as moving through the ranks and training syllabus with ease.
Cadets and staff alike can’t wait to see what the future brings for team 1208!
