Well done to all the Cadets who took part at Sundays Wing Swimming Gala. We came away with a number of awards; First in the Junior Boys Events and second overall in the Boys Events. CDT Metcalf has been selected to represent the Wing at the Inter-wing Swimming Event on the 23rd October at RAF Cranwell. Well done to all the Swimmers!!!
Welcome to 2011, hope you all had a good break over Christmas.
We have been busy making plans for all our activities during 2011, including camps, wing events and courses as well as squadron activities. We have noted some on our Forthcoming events planner which you can find at the foot of our Calendar page. As I’m sure you have all experienced – best made plans can change at a moments notice so please keep visiting the Calendar page regularly for any updates throughout the year.
A note to all Cadets and parents, the notice board in the hall has all the latest event information and it is encouraged to get your name on the application list for as many as you can. There are a limited number of spaces at our wing organised events, and although we try and give priority to those who haven’t been before it is advised to get your name forward as soon as possible.
Don’t forget if any of you would like to suggest an activity you can and if any parents would like to get involved in 2011, please get in touch.
This years annual summer camp was held at RAF Shawbury. During the camp we did a range of amazing activities including shooting, flying the Grob Tutor, having a ride in a Squirrel helicopter and visits to various places around the camp. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was a fantastic opportunity to visit a working RAF station. More photos are available on our Facebook page.
Manningtree Air Cadets will be at the Tendring Show this weekend on the 10th July 2010. Come and talk to us on our stand, in the Education tent, its a great way to find out more about us!
