Memory Lane & All Our Yesterdays: Fakenham Mayor Dennis Beare meets Air Training Corps cadets in 1994; plus Downham Market, King's Lynn & Watlington

The first official duty of new Fakenham Town Mayor, Mr Dennis Beare, in May 1994 was to present certificates to local Air Training Corps cadets.

At that time, it had become a tradition for town mayors to inspect members of 2534 (Fakenham) Squadron as one of their first engagements. Mr Beare was, however, the first mayor to visit the squadron at Fakenham High School following its move after the closure of RAF West Raynham which had been its base for 28 years.
