A surprise guest appearance was made by Mayor of Ely Councillor Mike Rouse who addressed both prospective recruits and their parents extolling the virtues of cadet service.

The evening was kicked off with a rather noisy demonstration outside of a working miniature jet engine by CI Colin Wills.

The Squadron also held its annual bake off competition with the cadets cakes being enjoyed and judged by the new recruits and their parents, who spoke with some of the squadron’s cadets, staff and parents of existing cadets over tea and cake.

New recruits will be welcomed next Monday night.
