Face-to-face training is again not possible, but we did manage to squeeze in a couple of activities earlier in the Autumn:
Congratulations to four of our cadets who completed the Bronze level of the National Navigation Award Scheme a few weekends ago. This covers essential map-reading skills, and was completed locally to Wymondham. All of the cadets did very well, even when faced with some tricky navigation decisions.
Furthermore, the four have since undertaken their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition. They, along with cadets from 864 (Watton) Sqn, planned and completed a two-day self-sufficient walking expedition, again in Norfolk. Normally, this would have included overnight camping, but DofE have allowed a concession for this due to the current public health restrictions. Many thanks to the Wing DofE Officer and the other staff involved for arranging the expedition opportunity. The cadets are now looking to finish off the remaining sections to complete their Bronze DofE Award.
1986 Wymondham Squadron updated their status.
1986 Sqn Running their way to success
Sunday 1st March saw three 1986 (Wymondham) Sqn RAFAC cadets run their way to first place medals, representing Norfolk and Suffolk Wing in the Inter-Wing Cross Country championships.
In the Junior girls category Cdt Prior won her race with a 1st place medal and Cdt Amblin came in just behind achieving a 4th place position. These two great runs contributed to the Wing team winning the overall Junior Girls competition.
FS Webb also competed in the Senior girls race, and also finished with an amazing 1st place medal.
Congratulations to all three of our cadets who have been selected to represent Central and East Region at the Inter Region cross Country Championships.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Wing Cross Country Championships are well underway. Good luck to all our cadets competing.
