Caistor Army Cadets win Community Award

Cadets from Caistor Detachment Lincolnshire Army Cadet force have won the Commandants Community Challenge with Caistor in Bloom.

A very successful open evening was held at the Caistor Detachment of the Lincolnshire Army Cadets with many attendees enjoying an evening of information and updates on the impressive progress thus far. An award was made to the Caistor Detachment in the presence of the Caistor in Bloom committee members, who also presented a Certificate of Achievement for 2014.

Cadets had spent ten days of their holiday with 350 other cadets at Lincolnshire Battalion Annual Camp held in Ripon. Alongside the normal training subjects First Aid, Shooting and Drill, the cadets took part in Walking Expeditions, Climbing, Kayaking and High Rope Adventures.

During the last three years Caistor Cadets have responded to the Commandants Community Challenge working with Caistor in Bloom. Finally they have been rewarded this year with the trophy and a cheque for £500 which will take them closer to their goal of purchasing their own standard for the Detachment to use on town parades. Caistor Town Council have generously added a further grant of £200.

Cadet Lance Corporal Shelley Barker also marched off with the Best 2* Female Cadet on Camp, having also won the award for best Junior Female Cadet at the Junior Camp in April. The Detachment is badged to the Royal Army Medical Corps and with all their training three of the cadets also formed part of the team which won the First Aid Competition on camp too.

Caistor Detachment parade every Tuesday night at Caistor Yarborough School and are always on the lookout for new recruits.
