Cadets and members of staff from 138 squadron Air Training Corps, completed the marathon bag pack during one of the busiest weekends on the run up to the Easter break at Morrison’s store in Netherfield.

The aim of the bag pack is to assist in funding for various Adventure Training weekends and trips to Cornwall.
Cadets and staff endured long queues and huge shopping trolleys to assist customers packing all their Easter goodies including Easter Eggs and hot cross buns.

The pack was an all day event and went extremely smooth indeed. Cadets and staff enjoyed chatting with customers and staff at Morrison’s, giving out stickers and model gliders to children, who all loved the cadets.

One customer Mrs M Buxton Said “The cadets were a real help, one cadet offering to take my heavy shopping to my car. They all looked very smart in their uniform”

Cash office Manager Karen Power said ”They were all very professional while handling customers shopping. A very well organised event, the cadets all looked very smart in their uniforms. The cadets and staff were on hand with lots of information, should any customer’s children be interested in joining the air cadets. In all perfect“

Cadet corporal James Underwood said “This is my seventh bag packing experience with cadets and staff at 138. I thought we did extremely well considering how busy the store was .The cadets were well behaved, I have really enjoyed the day overall.

138 squadron Air Training Corps would like to thank both staff and customers at Morrisons for their kind donations and invites at this busy time.
