Successful End to the Year for 55 (Woodford & Bramhall) SQN ATC

The month of November saw the cadets busy collecting for the Royal British Legion, helping to raise over £1000 on the 5th November in Bramhall Village despite the cold weather! Our thanks must go the The Mill Youth Club who provided us with Hot Chocolate and a warm place to sit in-between shifts. Continuing on the theme of Remembrance, 10 cadets from 55 SQN attended the annual Festival of Remembrance at Manchester Airport held under the wings of Concorde. The service was powerful and moving, reminding everybody of those who fought for our freedom in the World Wars as well as those who are still fighting today. Just a few days later on the 13th November, the squadron was in action again with everybody turning out to take part in the Bramhall Remembrance Day Parade and service. All of the cadets looked exceptionally smart and performed beautifully to keep the spirit of Remembrance alive.
