New Year, new coat of paint at 1936!

Staff, Civilian Committee & Cadets from 1936 (Newton) Squadron spent the festive period hard at work ensuring the Unit was fit for purpose in time for the beginning of 2011. After a decade of yellow paint adorning the walls, OC 1936 decided it was time for a change!

Although originally bright and fresh when the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir Andrew Buchanan, opened the Unit in 2000, over time and much hard work inside, the appearance was getting somewhat “shabby”.

With a new expertly applied coat of magnolia, the Unit displays itself in a light, airy and fresh image, constructive to a successful learning environment. The new décor is certainly worthy of the professional image that has come to show Newton at its best!

OC 1936, Flt Lt Jodi Hudson, said “The re-decoration of the Unit has been a great success and has had a very positive impact on everyone at 1936. The whole Squadron has pulled together to do the work and make it happen, it has been a real team effort. I would like to especially thank Mr David Dodge of our Civilian Committee for providing the paint, along with Mrs Greasley, our Squadron Chairman, for all her hard work in support of the project.”
