Beeston Air Cadets- Victoria Centre Support

Article posted: Oct 31, 2012 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

Cadets at 1359 (Beeston) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets will soon be able to make use of GPS technology thanks to a donation from the Victoria Centre in Nottingham.

Following on from last year’s donation to 1359 which enabled personalised running vests to be purchased for the squadron, Victoria Centre have once again made a generous donation which will be used to purchase a number of Garmin outdoor mapping GPS systems. This will provide the cadets with an alternative form of navigation to add to those already taught as part of map reading and outdoor navigation activities.

Staff, cadets and the Civilian Committee at 1359 (Beeston) Squadron would like to extend their thanks to the Victoria Centre, particularly Liz Sewell, the Centres Marketing Manager, for their continued support to the Squadron.

1359 (Beeston) Squadron are currently recruiting, if you are aged 13-18 and are interested in joining the Royal Air Force Air Cadets then contact us at or visit our website at to find out more. Alternatively the Squadron will also have a recruitment and publicity stand in Victoria Centre on Saturday 20th October where staff and cadets will be available to discuss with you the activities that are on offer and answer any questions you may have.
