Squadron is closed tonight (Monday 21 January) because of the snow. Hopefuly back to normal on Friday!
On Friday June 1st the squadron’s normal parade was given over for Huddersfield’s cadets to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Whilst the cadets enjoyed party games hosted by C.I. Couchman, the staff scoured the realm for over forty portions of the nations best loved convenience food. Their task complete, the questing staff joined the cadets for a (very)semi-formal meal followed by the Royal Toast given by Cpl Mate, as the latest cadet to turn 18 yoa.
The mountains of waste cleared away, the cadets and staff enjoyed evil pass the parcel which included some forfits, such as humming the national anthem and kissing the most attractive cadet in the room (to cadet Matthews horror not him, oh the misplaced vanity)before the rather disappointing prize at the end.
“It was a very enjoyable evening” said cadet Ball, “I especially enjoyed the lovely fish and chips. Tonight made me feel very patriotic and I’m now looking forward to the Diamond Jubilee this weekend even more!”
On Friday 10th , there is a chance to come down and visit 59 Huddersfield Squadron. The night will help you – a prospective cadet - to have a taste of what the squadron has to offer and also what you can gain from us. If you have any questions that need answering or information, there will be Cadets and Staff members ready to assist you on the night. Some of the activities included will be Fieldcraft, sports, Duke of Edinburgh, Flight Simulator and many others.
The night will begin at 19:00 and will end around 21:00.
Two talented cadets from 59 (Huddersfield) Squadron ATC have racked up an impressive number of medals between them over their short career in the Air Cadets.
Cadet Corporals Emily Casson (left) and Lydia Ngyuen (right) have achieved over 50 awards between the two of them in nearly all disciplines of sports provided by the Air Cadets.
Emily, 15 commented “I am really proud to represent my squadron and wing in sports and enjoy taking part with everything offered at Huddersfield, including the sports or physical section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award”.
Lydia, 16 also added “It’s great being able to take part in sports that we do at school but also the chance to do others as well; recently we had a training session in trampolining in Huddersfield and it was a good chance to have a go at a sport that I haven’t done in a while!”
The photo to the left shows Lydia practicing a back somersault at the training session with Kirklees Rebound, organised by qualified British Gymnastics coach and squadron officer Flying Officer Adam Horsfall.
