858 get a new squadron mascot

The cadets of 858 (Rushden) Squadron ATC have just been introduced to their new squadron mascot.

The squadron’s adjutant Mrs Jenny Towell has recently rescued Kimmy, a lovely collie cross, from the RSPCA. Kimmy has very quickly become part of the squadron after one night.

Kimmy is 10 years old (which is quite old in dog years) but has plenty of life left in her! She is gentle and full of character and she isn’t even bothered by the squadron’s band!

The cadets have taken a real shine to Kimmy and after only one night they asked Mrs Towell if they could adopt Kimmy as the new squadron mascot.

Rushden Squadron recruit teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 if you are interested feel free to attend the squadron during a parade evening on Monday and Wednesday nights from 7.00p.m till 9.30p.m at the Drill hall on Victoria Road in Rushden.
