Mayor Cllr Tony Bishopp visits Hunstanton Army Cadet Force

On Thursday 23rd January, Mayor Councillor Tony Bishopp and Councillors Robert Corby, Wendy Croucher, Verity Jowett & Michael Ruston were delighted to visit the Hunstanton detachment of the Army Cadet Force to watch the Cadets parade and witness part of their training.

During the evening, the Mayor took part in an inspection of the cadets with Britannia Company's OC Major Bagge which was followed by a presentation of the Cadet of the Year Trophy for 2019 to Corporal Hill.

After a few short words from the Mayor and Major Bagge the evening's training began, giving the Mayor and councillors an opportunity to see what happens on a training night and at the end of the evening, Major Bagge promoted two of the cadets from Corporals to Sergeants. Well done to Sgt Bailey and Sgt Hill!

The Army Cadet Force (ACF) has nearly 40,000 cadets in more than 1,600 detachments all over the country and is one of the biggest and best clubs around. When it comes to fun, friendship, action and adventure, it's hard to find anything that beats the Army Cadets.

Become an Army Cadet and you'll be spending your spare time taking part in adventurous activities like rock climbing, mountain biking, archery and abseiling. There will also be plenty of chance to play all your favourite sports because the ACF has competitions for both boys and girls at county, regional and national level.

Hunstanton Detachment of the AFC parades on a Thursday Evening at the Hunstanton Community Centre between 19.00hrs-21.30hrs. To find out more, visit the Norfolk AFC Facebook page or go to www.armycadets.com
