Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition for Beeston Cadets

Article posted: Oct 27, 2009 by Sqn Ldr Wilson

Five cadets from 1359 (Beeston) Squadron have just completed their expedition for the Silver Award. The three day walk through the Peak District had been meticulously planned by them to ensure the route was safe, but challenging, and that they would be complete by the time night fell.

The first night was spent under canvas in Edale and the second night in Hayfield. In total they covered 46 kilometres over the three days and they were glad of a long soak in the bath once they got home. At least the sun shone for them on each day.

CWO Kyle Crawford, CFS Grant Vernon, Cadet Sgt Claire Hallam and Cadet Cpl’s Simon Ranson and Nichola Whitehouse now need to complete their voluntary work before they can be presented with the Silver Award.
