With no snow or even the sign of a frost on the way the only way for 209 (West Bridgford) Cadets to experience some festive weather was at the Ice Arena in Nottingham.
With skills ranging from desperately holding on to the side wall to ice hockey level Cadets and staff took to the ice for the Squadrons annual pre-Christmas Skate.
Sergeant (ATC) Richard Vincett said “I regularly go ice skating, once a year at Christmas with the Squadron. Unfortunately the muscle memory doesn’t quite stretch to the whole 12 months! We had a good turn out from the Cadets and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
