AIR Cadets found the perfect way to celebrate the opening of their new building, with displays of their skills to delighted supporters.

Last Sunday members of 2532 Squadron, now based at Millmead Hall in Wolverton, were joined by the Mayor of Newport Pagnell, members of the British Legion and Wolverton and Greenleys Town Council as the ribbon was cut on their new home.

Parents and grandparents were also invited as cadets performed a banner drill before showing off their skills in a first aid display.

They also set up a mock camp, another essential skill they will need when they participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

Throughout the day of celebration visitors were also treated to displays of model aeroplane making and model helicopter flying, both of which will soon be honed to a competitive level for regional competitions.

The afternoon displays were finished off with another fine show of leadership and teamwork skills.

Blindfolded cadets had to walk through a mock mine field, guided by colleagues.

2532 Squadron is a voluntary youth group supported by the Royal Air Force with members aged between 13 and 20 years old with parades every Tuesday and Thursday.
