Army Cadets open night at Hunstanton
To mark the opening of a new Detachment in Hunstanton, an open night took place last week with demonstrations, gun dismantling and camouflage hiding among the activities.
There was also information on the skills and opportunities on offer to young adults within The Army Cadets Force.
Mayor Amanda Bosworth attended the event and said she is hoping for a mayor’s Cadet to create a link with schools and young people.
She said: “We are really excited to have a new Detachment in Hunstanton. It’s really good for the town.
"It was a wonderful evening where young people can learn new skills that will serve them well in all areas of life. We will support them all the way.
“They all looked very smart in their uniforms. If only I would have been young enough, I would have signed up on the spot!”
Three displays took place in the town’s community centre on Avenue Road, before those in attendance moved outside to the community orchard where Cadets were camouflaged.
“There was about a dozen of them hidden and there was a row of people who had to try and spot them,” councillor Bosworth said.
“After 15 to 20 minutes, only one had been spotted so we had to call them all in as it was very cold!”
