Long Eaton Air Cadets bid farewell to their building

Cadets and staff bid farewell to the old building

The current accommodation used by 2195 (Long Eaton) Squadron Air Cadets has witnessed it’s last Parade. On Monday 25th March it is to be demolished to make way for a new Cadet Centre that will also accommodate the Army Cadet detachment.

For almost 30 years the Air Cadets of Long Eaton have managed with the cramped conditions offered by the old wooden building. They are now looking forward to being able to expand in a purpose built training facility that will contain up to date training aids.

“It is sad to see the old hut go, it was full of so many memories for past generations of cadets, we look forward to moving into our new building and hope the modern centre will encourage more Long Eaton youngsters to join us” said Flight Lieutenant Jack Stapanian, the Squadron’s Commanding Officer.

The squadron is currently looking for temporary accommodation but hope to have the situation resolved after a short Easter break
