Fond Farewells!

A special night of farewells took place at 1406 (Spalding) Squadron ATC recently.

Cadet Sergeant Steven Barnett left the Squadron after almost 5 years to join the Royal Air Force as an ICT technician. The Squadron presented Steven with a card and small memento to remember the Squadron by, and hopefully find useful when he embarks on his initial basic training at RAF Halton, before moving onto RAF Cosford for a year of specialist trade training. Steven finished the evening by serving cake to all the cadets and staff and said, “Well that was an interesting night! Thanks to everyone for all your messages and luck, it’s definitely been an experience and it is a shame to go, but I can safely say I’m going to miss you “.

The same evening saw Flight Sergeant Mike Reynolds leave the Squadon after 7 years to join 51 (Orton) Squadron.  Due to the imminent arrival of a new baby, and being closer to home, Mike took the decision to move squadrons so that he could be closer to home in case baby Reynolds decides to make an early appearance.

The final farewell saw Wing Commander Paul Bower make his final official visit to the Squadron, before retiring as Wing Commander in April. Wing Commander Bower held an open forum session with the cadets before presenting several awards.

The air cadets, staff, and Committee wish them all the very best for the future and would like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their support, help and assistance over the years.
