Bourne Army Cadets bounce back after pandemic with week of activities
Bourne Army Cadets is set to welcome new members as it bounces back after the pandemic.
The army cadet force, like so many other youth groups up and down the country, was forced to close for more than a year because of the pandemic.
Bourne Army Cadets has been back up and running since April at its cadet hut in Austerby Road.
The troop has already held a successful activity week when the Army Cadet Force was unable to go on its usual 10-day residential trip with other cadets from all over the country.
Activities organised over what would usually be the camp period included first aid training, shooting, navigation and expedition training, rock climbing, archery, clay pigeon shooting, laser tag, fieldcraft, radio training and competition days between the various detachments.
Troop leader Lt Laura Cooper said the activities were attended by well over 150 cadets from the area, including 30 cadets from the Bourne detachment.
The Bourne detachmnet is now looking forward to welcoming new cadets into our ranks from September 1. Cadets must be aged 12, in Year 8, or over to join.
Laura said the detachment was also looking for more adult volunteers to help facilitate “this great service given to the kids of Bourne”.
Potential cadets or adults volunteers should email: email@example.com for more information.
