The annual dining in and awards night was held at the Kings Hall. The evening was attended by over 65 cadets and staff with many parents joining for the awards presentations. One notable absentee was Flt Lt Standish who was on duty at RAF Halton preparing for the National drill and Band Championships; this was the first dining in night he had missed since joining the squadron some 30 years ago.
The guest of honour was Sqn Ldr Brain McCan who travelled down from Scotland. He congratulated the squadron on the many successes during the year and the warm welcome he had been given commenting “the evening is a great success with its mix of traditional dining in night format with the more informal fish supper.
