Grant buys new gear for cadets

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

VIPER vests which al­low teenagers to take part in com­bat ac­tiv­i­ties have been pre­sented to Peter­bor­ough mem­bers of the Cam­bridgeshire Army Cadet Force (ACF).

The 25 vests were handed over to cadets at the Talav­era De­tach­ment, at Sav­ille Road, West­wood, thanks to a grant from the Hyde Hol­i­day Play fund.

Com­mu­nity Re­gen­er­a­tion Co­or­di­na­tor for Min­ster Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, part of the Hyde Group, Tracey Croucher, said: “Our next step is to iden­tify which of the cadets are Min­ster res­i­dents so we can en­gage with them and in­vite them to the ACF sum­mer camp.”

The ACF con­sists of 45,000 cadets based at more than 1,700 lo­cal de­tach­ments and units across the coun­try.
