Checkout the gallery for some snaps from our recent visit to Loughborough Firestation. It's fair to say that things got a little damp ... and a change of clothing was required before the journey home.
Recently, I had the privilege of attending RAF High Wycombe in Walters Ash for a week. Home to Headquarters Air Command, it has been the most educational experience I have had so far in my cadet career.
Cadets from 1181 (Syston) Squadron ATC spent an enjoyable evening viewing the Moon. stars and planets with the assistance of Melton Astronomy Society.
