Awards and certificates were presented to cadets recognising their commitment and hard work.

Flight lieutenant Dave Emsley said: “I am always pleased to see the success of our cadets in their individual achievements and proud to see how they grow in self-confidence since joining the air cadets.

“It was a pleasure to welcome the new mayor so early on in his tenure, it was a real boost for the squadron.”

Mayor Jim Knight said: “The work the cadets do in the community is quite amazing.
