THERE were celebrations at the 492 Solihull Air Cadets, where six members recently received their 1st Class awards.
Solihull MP Lorely Burt and Coun Kate Wild (Con, St Alphege) joined the cadets, staff and parents for an awards ceremony. The awards were presented by the squadron commander, Flight Lieutenant Elliot Hemes.
Following the presentations, the squadron marched past the assembled guests.
It’s been a good year all around for the group - who won the Per Ardua Cup for the third year running. The competition takes place between the various different squadrons in the same wing.
492 (Solihull) Air Cadets meet twice a week and is open to boys and girls between 13 and 17. For more information visit www.492aircadets.org.
