Over the past few months, our Civilian Committee have worked towards being recognised by the Jack Petchey Foundation and tonight, Thursday 13th June, we awarded our first two awards to Eric Pak and Corporal Ablett. Along side the awards, Mr Pak and Corporal Ablett both choose how the squadron will spend the award grants of £250 which accompany the awards.
Mr Pak was recognised for his efforts to help other cadets develop
their skills and become better leaders. He is always willing to help and
is always approachable.
Corporal Ablett has only been a corporal for a short while but has been very supportive to fellow cadets and always tries to ensure everyone enjoys their time at the squadron.
Tonight we also saw the promotion of Corporal Hanchett to Sergeant, and Sergeant Slade to Flight Sergeant. Both have been extremely dedicated cadets on the squadron and throughout the wing, taking leading roles within the final parade at Kent Wing’s first ever Drill & Ceremonial Camp.
Our more junior cadets are always progressing as well. Tonight Cadet Sunico passed his drill assessment and was awarded his First Class cadet classification. Cadet Sunico now moves on to his Leading Cadet training.
