THE HIGH SHERIFF AND THE ARMY CADETS
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”.
