Phil said: “The RAF Air Cadets is a marvellous organisation that I have had the honour to be part of for some years as a volunteer, and as a cadet before that. I am excited to be returning to Mannock Squadron and lead the great team of volunteers we have here, that do so much for the young people in Wellingborough.”

378 (Mannock) Squadron is based at Spring Gardens in Wellingborough. The unit is currently recruiting for adult volunteer staff as well as welcoming new cadets to its ranks.
