They were on hand for the open­ing of a new Air Cadet ac­tiv­ity cen­tre, which was for­mally opened next to the ex­ist­ing Cadet Cen­tre on Gil­bert­field Road.

The cen­tre will be used by Air Cadets across the area, of­fer­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion for 18 cadets plus four in­struc­tors. The cen­tre has flight sim­u­la­tors, class­rooms, an IT suite, ra­dio room and of­fices.
