FLYING, sports, target shooting, adventure training - does this sound like your idea of fun?

If so, check out the Downend Air Cadets at their open evening on March 11.

The Downend detachment of 2152 squadron meets at St James Church Hall in Richmond Road, Mangotsfield, and is open to anyone who is in Year 8 and above at school.

As well as showing potential recruits aged 12 to 17 what is on offer, the open evening aims to attract some adult volunteers to help support activities.

Warrant Officer Tom Watson, who runs the group, said: “You’ll soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward - you constantly see the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and Duke of Edinburgh Awards.”

He stressed that air cadets is not a recruiting organisation for the Services but is a way for young people to fulfil their potential.

For further information, email or get along to the open evening, which takes place from 8-9.30pm.
