1439 ATC Squadron Armed Forces Celebration Day
- WN8 9NH
On Armed Forces day we will be opening our doors so we can celebrate the success and accomplishments of our Air Cadets and our parent organisation the RAF. We want our community to have this wonderful chance to come in and find out what we are all about. We will be inviting ex cadets, ex-military and veterans so that the public can come and chat to these honourable service men and women and gain first-hand knowledge of the nature of life in the military.
At the start of our day we will have a flag raising ceremony which will take place on the Squadron’s grounds.
Inside the Squadron we will have displays and lots of information leaflets. We will also have a presentation of all the squadrons photographs taken throughout the year of all the exciting activities our cadets participated in. We want to showcase and be proud of our achievements.
There will be demonstrations, presentations and the possibility of taking part in activities, we will also have some interesting kit people can look at; plus you will have the opportunity to ask questions and find out more about what makes the Air Cadets so popular. The squadron will be manned by Air cadet staff and experienced Cadets so no question will be left unanswered!
Not only this we must not forget what Armed Forces Day is all about. Rejoicing and honouring the work and dedication of our brave Servicemen and women throughout the world. We will be having a celebration BBQ lunch for all those attending and festivity of fun to mark yet another wonderful year. We hope the day will have something for everyone.
