Nine Air Cadets from 209 (West Bridgford) Squadron have received their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards for completing all four sections of the Award Scheme.

Each Cadet had to complete an activity in each of the following, volunteering, physical, skills and expedition. They could choose what sport they did for the physical but had to show improvement over the duration of the Award. The expedition involved camping out overnight and completing navigation exercises.

209s D of E Officer, Sergeant ATC Jade Brock said of the Sqn success, “We’re thrilled to be celebrating this success. For nine of our Cadets to achieve their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award is outstanding. Each Cadet had to volunteer, making a difference within their community, develop practical and social skills and keep active. This Award will add a widely recognised achievement to each Cadet’s CV. We’re very proud of them and look forward to starting them on their Silver Award!”

The Cadets who have achieved the Bronze Award are Sergeants Michael Disney and Ryan Young, Corporals Sarah Bramley, Barnaby Taylor and Stephanie Willet and Cadets Adam Quayle, Navraj Boughan, Finn Wilkinson and Fajar Rizal.
