Air Cadets on recruitment drive

Teenagers are being targeted by a two-week recruitment campaign to join the town’s Air Cadets.

It is rare for the organisation to actively go after new recruits, but to ensure a healthy membership, a two-week window is being opened on September 2 to sell the Air Cadets’ benefits to the town’s teenagers.

“Aside from flying, sports, target shooting, adventure training and great fun, recruits will soon find that being an air cadet is its own reward by constantly seeing the benefits of your own efforts, building on your achievements and earning BTECs and Duke of Edinburgh Awards,” said a spokesperson for the Welshpool Air Cadets. “You'll be expected to take part in as many of the activities we run as possible, but with what's on offer you won't need much persuading.”

As we are a 'military' youth organization, expectations and standards are high with the organization expectings its members to be well mannered and self-disciplined.

“Our squadron welcome personal visits by potential cadets accompanied by a parent or guardian, during one of our Parade Nights – these are held twice a week on Monday and Friday starting at 18.45hrs and finishing at 21.30.

“It's important to know that we're not a recruiting organisation for the Services (but it's great if you decide you want to join later on). We're not interested in anything but you and your potential, and will help you get the most from your experience as a cadet.”

The cadet experience is open to everyone, whatever nationality, background or ability, male or female.

“If you're between 13, or at age 12 when beginning school year eight, and 17 years old you can join us,” he added.

“We will only be accepting new recruits during the Recruitment drive. Unfortunately, we will not accept recruits outside of these.”
