Air Cadets from across the Central and East Region of the RAF Air cadets gathered at the Grantham Athletics Stadium for a day of competition that ended with a resounding win for the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing’s young athletes.
There was a welcome break in the unseasonal wet weather that allowed a full day of uninterrupted, keenly fought competition of the highest standard.
Along the way several records were broken:
Class A Boys 1500m Cdt J Garratt Beds & Cambs Wing 4.43.32mins
Class A Boys Long Jump Cdt L Haley Beds & Cambs Wing 5.53m
Class C Junior Men Shot CWO J Hudson South & East Mids Wing 11.30m
Class D Junior Girls 400m Cdt G Pescod Beds & Cambs Wing 1.05.51mins

Addressing the cadets and presenting the trophies was the Region’s Commandant, Group Captain Nigel Gorman who praised all the cadets who competed reminding them that to get to the inter wing competition meant they were the best in their wings and that all those cadets who took part should be proud of what they have achieved.
Squadron Leader Michelle Worsnop, the Region Sports Officer echoed those sentiments and went on to thank all the staff who helped make the day the resounding success it turned out to be.
