209 (West Bridgford) Squadron scored a double success at this years Wing Field Day in the Media and Photographic Competitions. The Cadet entry in the Media Competition and the Staff entry in the Photographic Competition both achieved first place. A second place was also achieved by the Cadets in their Photographic competition.

The Cadet team was led by Cpl Sarah Bramley (19). They had the task of coming up with display designed to inform and encourage Cadets and Staff to take part in the CVQO led BTECs and other qualifications and training. They came up with an idea based around the propeller of a Tutor aircraft

Cpl Bramley said of their success, “It was a nice surprise when it was announced that we had won the media Competition and come second in Photography. The team worked well together with everyone contributing ideas. We all worked up to the last minute to ensure our display was ready. As this was my last Wing Field Day as a Cadet it was a great way to round off my Cadet Career.”
