THE CADETS of 1123 Hooton Park Squadron held its annual dinner in at the Village Hotel, Bromborough.
Guests of honour at the event were Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Alan Jennings, and his wife Cathy.
Flight Lieutenant Paul Knight congratulated the squadron on a very eventful year, including taking part in the cadet 150 parade to being given the freedom of the city as part of the Merseyside wing.
He said: “1123 is always willing to assist the greater community and I would like to thank all staff and committee members – but especially the cadets.”
Cllr Jennings, who has a great interest in the Royal Air Force and has a passion for aircraft and flying, said: “A squadron is a very close-knit community. It consists of many, many people, most of them arriving as strangers, bringing with them a multitude of personalities and abilities, willing to forget themselves into a surrogate family.
“I wish them every success, secure in the knowledge that the squadron is in safe hands.”
