The High Sher­iff of Kent, Jane Ash­ton, vis­ited the Ten­ter­den de­tach­ment of the Kent Army Cadet Force and ex­pe­ri­enced first hand what an ACF pa­rade night con­sists of: drill and turnout, and a les­son on Ber­gan pack­ing for ex­er­cise.

She also pre­sented Cadet Com­pany Sergeant Ma­jor Suzanne Good­sell with the high­est star level avail­able, her 4* badge. She also praised the de­tach­ment for rais­ing £1451.72 for the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion Poppy Ap­peal.

The High Sher­iff, whose Shrieval year ends this month, said: “It has been a real priv­i­lege to see Ten­ter­den Army Cadets on their pa­rade night. I wholly sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion, as it pro­vides so many fan­tas­tic life skills for young peo­ple which are trans­fer­able to the work­place.”

Colonel Chris Gil­bert, Com­man­dant Kent ACF, added: “We of­fer the chance to learn qual­i­fi­ca­tions such as DofE, first aid and BTEC, as well as the fun ac­tiv­i­ties like com­pe­ti­tion shoot­ing and ad­ven­ture train­ing”.
