Hundreds of awards were presented to deserving young people last week as Kettering Air Cadets held their annual presentation evening.

Over 170 presentations were made during the evening, honouring the hard work, dedication and commitment of the 60 young people who regularly attend the Northampton Road Squadron.

Awards were given to cadets who have excelled in sports, swimming, classroom learning, shooting and flying.

Cadet Flight Sergeant Christopher Perkins was one of the evening’s big winners scooping numerous awards including the much coveted Councillor Groome Trophy for Public Speaking.

Kettering Air Cadet Commanding Officer, Guy Slack, said: “Our annual presentation evening is a real highlight and gives us the opportunity to shout about the fantastic work the cadets do during their time with us.

“Many cadets stand out as sports people while others excel in aviation studies and field craft – the awards evening gives us the opportunity to acknowledge all of our cadets and effort they put in every week.”
