KIRK Hallam Cubs and their leaders have enjoyed an Easter treat with a tour of East Midlands Airport. The 21st group was shown around arrivals and departures before going into Aerozone to have hands-on experience in the learning centre.
For some of the youngsters it was their first time at the airport.
Cub Scout leader Diane Harris said: “They were really excited to be there – the time really flew by.
“The cubs were really thrilled when we were coming home as a plane was landing right by the side of us.”
The group’s next event in celebration of Ilkeston’s centenary of Scouting is the annual St George’s Day Parade on Sunday April 22.
