Air Cadets from 1015 (Horsham) Squadron are celebrating a huge success after bringing home four trophies.

This highly impressive achievement was gained when the unit participated in the Wing Cross Country Competition held at Crowborough Training Camp, East Sussex.

Last Sunday, on a chilly November morning the Cadets took part in a grueling three mile course amidst some rather watery and boggy conditions which did not deter the cadets participating.

The Senior Girls team was extremely proud as they were able to defend their title as winners of the Senior Girls Trophy for the second year running.

The day ended with the Cadets winning four trophies including the coveted Overall Winners Trophy. Group winners can look forward to representing Sussex at the next level in the New Year.

The Training Officer of 1015 (Horsham) Air Cadets, Sergeant Kieren Clarke-Hill said:

“I am very pleased with these results, bringing home so many trophies is tremendous achievement and demonstrates the resolve and commitment of our cadets.”

Cross Country is one of many sports offered by Horsham Air Cadets, they also have the chance to do many activities including visits to RAF Stations, Adventure Training & the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
