Cadets from 1359 (Beeston) Sqn enjoyed considerable success at the recent South and East Midlands Wing Athletics competition held at Saffron Lane in Leicester. They won 9 events in the various age groups, took first place in the Junior Boys and Senior Girls age groups and finished 2nd overall out of the 29 competing squadrons. In addition 1359’s Cpl Beth Denham won the Best Female and Cadet Joe Mitchell won the Best Male competitions.

OC 1359, Flt Lt Phil Bannister praised the cadets, saying “This is just reward for all the effort the squadron has put in over the last few months in preparing for this competition. Congratulations to all of the cadets involved, those competing and those supporting, in doing a great job on the day, you deserved it. Special congratulations to Corporal Denham and Cadet Mitchell for winning their individual trophies. Well Done!”

The squadron will now be competing in 12 events representing South and East Midlands Wing at the Regional Athletics competition taking place soon. Good luck to them from the staff and cadets at 1359.
