Article posted: Jul 23, 2012 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

The parents of the Air Cadets of 209 (West Bridgford) were invited to the first of hopefully many Summer Presentation Evening held at the Squadron.

The idea of the evening was to enable the parents to visit the Squadron and see all that their sons and daughters had achieved over the past six months.

The largest group of awards went to those who had achieved their Heart Start and Youth First Aider. They were Cadets Zoe Kirk, Eddie McManus, Fajar Rizal, Freddie Filz, Ramish Mendes, Lauren Robinson and Rosie Wildman.

Corporal Lydia Welham and Cadet Dom Kay received their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Certificates and Sgt Serena Linley and Ramish Mendes received their Silver D of E Certificates. Sporting ‘Blues’ badges were presented to Cadets Rosie Wildman and Laura Toplass.

The final presentations made were promotions. Ramish Mendes and Dom Kay were promoted to Corporal and Serena Linley was promoted to Flight Sergeant.

The Co of 209 Sqn, Flt Lt Steve Richards said “I’m very pleased with the way our Summer Presentation went. It was a good opportunity for the parents to see the work their sons and daughters do and the rewards they achieve.”
