Cadets mark anniversary

AIR Cadets at Ilkeston’s 348 Sqadron welcomed more than 70 people to an open evening hosted to mark their 70th anniversary.

Former cadets and members of the public joined the recruits at their base on Albert Street.

Erewash MP Jessica Lee and Assistant Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Kevin Miller, joined the cadets for a service at St Marys Church on Sunday to finish off their anniversary week.

Sgt David Smedley said: “The open evening was a great success for the squadron, everyone put 100 per cent into it and really enjoyed showing an insight into what we do.”
