Air Cadet weekend....

Well what a weekend it has been, hence why I haven't managed to post anything here. Time to make up for it now though.

The first special event I would like to share with you is my son's Air Cadet Annual Dinner. He has been in the cadets since June 2014 but this is the first dinner that we have attended. It was chance to get glammed up in our fancy dresses and suits, which isn't normal for us I must say.

 Unfortunately my daughter didn't attend with us but Connor did have the company of his grandparents and my partner. We had a thoroughly good evening with lovely food, music and dancing and there was even a photo booth there which was busy constantly with the cadets wearing an assortment of accessories. Formal photos were also done at the beginning of the evening.

Planning wasn't as good though as the dinner fell on the evening before their Remembrance Day parade and church service so there was possibly some bleary eyed people the following morning as it was 9.30am gathering. The first service and laying of wreaths went smoothly, the day was dry with a little bit of sun which was also a bonus. After this service the cadets formed up alongside others and marched along the high street to St Paul's church for another service.

The way the cadets marched was absolutely wonderful, all in time and very smart. They should all be very proud of themselves. After the service they formed up yet again, unlike some other cadets who just walked out of church and scattered in all directions, and again marched back to the other end of the High Street. Lots of lovely comments were made and people certainly looked on with admiration at them all.

Well done to everyone. A wonderful way to finish the weekend. I look forward now to next year's gathering.

See you all soon.
