The past few months have see cadets, staff and civilian committee members working hard to raise funds for the charity Help for Heroes. Between a stall at Bolesworth Classic show, selling to cadets, friends and family along with work colleagues the squadron has managed to raise an impressive £700 for the charity.
95 Crewe Squadron has been holding on to a secrete for a while that behind the walls of their hut on Lime Tree Avenue stands 30 young people aged 13-19, 2 who have just completed and 3 of which are just about to finish their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Flight Sergeant Laura Montague and Sergeant Tom Payne are the first cadets at 95 Crewe Squardon to achieve this award in over 10 years are now awaiting a letter to invite them to the Palace in London! Flight Sergeant Ryan Jones, Flight Sergeant Oliver King and past Cadet Warrant Officer Vici Bates will be following them to the palace within the next couple of months. This team of top class cadet NCOs have proved that young people in Crewe are getting out there and doing something good in the community.
95 Crewe Air Cadets have become un-miss-able with the help and support of Mornflake who have recently donated 50 bright orange branded polo shirts to the squadron. The polo shirts will be worn at a variety of squadron events over the years to come and see Crewe Squadron stand out due to their bright colour. Most recently Cadets, Staff and the Civilian Committee of 95 Crewe supported Bolesworth Classic’s Show and wore their polo shirts during their area party and stall duties.
A hot 27 May 2012 brought with it a full day of cadet activities, from Banner Drill to First Aid, Drill teams, to Air Craft Recognition and modelling. 95 Crewe Cadets did the squadron proud with their efforts and improved in the squadron rankings compared to last year. The cadets were pleased with their progress an so were the staff, shoes were extra shiny but the sun did melt some of the polish!
