CADETS from Ellesmere Port went up the mountains on a practice Duke of Edinburgh award trip.
The 1074 (Ellesmere Port) Sqn ATC had to navigate and walk for 15 miles, erect and live in tents for the weekend and cook their own food.
Later they did some skiing at Llandudno dry ski slopes, all returning home very tired. The Squadron plans to have the actual Bronze award hike in August.
To help the cadets plan future expeditions, the squadron was handed a donation of £100 by Ellesmere Port-based company Innospec to buy new compasses.
Innospec's representative Diana Farey went along to unit headquarters to make the presentation.
The squadron is always looking for new cadets. Anyone aged 13 or over is welcome to come along on a Tuesday and Thursday, from 7.15-9pm, to its headquarters behind the TA Centre next to Travis Perkins in Ellesmere Port, or ring 0151 355 7271.
