1444 Brownhills Squadron Air Cadets take great pride in all things, but especially Remembrance. Image from the Squadron of this year’s parade.

A lovely note reaches me from  Flt Lt Carolyn Sault of the 1444 Brownhills Squadron Air Cadets, who do so much good work with the youth of Brownhills – people who shop locally will know that Cadets from the local Squadron often undertake bag packs at local stores in return for donations.

Flt Lt Sault and all the Cadets would like to thank all the people who donated this year, and thus allowed the group to carry on their fine work.

She wrote:

To the Customers of B&M Brownhills and Tesco, Brownhills. Thank you for all the donations at our bag packs throughout 2016.

The funds raised have been used for numerous activities all to benefit the Cadets. The activities include Duke of Edinburgh awards, adventure training, camps and First Aid training to name a few.

Without the support of you the customers and community the cadets would not be able to take part in these activities.

The Cadets, Staff and Civilian Committee send a heartfelt thank you to you all and wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a happy new year to all.

Flt Lt Carolyn Sault
Officer Commanding
1444 Brownhills Squadron.

This is a wonderful gesture, and at a time when there are justified concerns over local antisocial behaviour and other problems, it’s worth remembering that the vast majority of local youth are decent kids who do good stuff.

Thanks to Flt Lt Sault for getting in touch. It’s nice to share something positive!
