Last weekend cadets from the squadron were once again out and about participating in a range of different activities. On Saturday, eight cadets completed the bronze cyber course, gaining a greater understanding of cyber security and how to keep safe online. FS Riley also attended the Inter Wing Senior Football competition at Blackburn.
On Sunday, cadets again completed an Archery session, developing their skills and participating in a number of games. Cadet Jones said “I appreciated the opportunity to develop skills I had previously learned. I through enjoyed participating in the games, even if we didn’t win!
Following Archery, the group braved the cold and windy conditions and completed a litter pick on Red Acre Beach in Seaham. The volume of litter collected was reduced compared to that collected from the same location 12 months ago, which was great to see. Cadet White said “It was good to see the difference we made to the beach”.
On Tuesday, six cadets were awarded their National Navigation Award Scheme certificates following their assessed day walk held in December.
