St Brigid’s School

AT the end of every year, the young people in the CCF got the fantastic opportunity to take part in a one-week residential camp, where they get the chance to do things that cannot be done at the school.

The RAF section, under Flight Lieutenant Roberts with help from Lieutenant Spiller, went to RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire.

The cadets had a fantastic time - flying in the Grob Tutor, shooting on the computer generated range, raft building and canoeing on Rutland Water.

They also built - and fired - a rocket, climbed the obstacle course and solved a humanitarian crisis.

Cadets visited all of the station’s sections, including the police, where they had to solve a failed drug handover - led by a very dodgy looking Mr Roberts!

At the fire section, Cadet Bethan Shutt used the fire engine’s hose to dowse everyone else, and cadets also visited the transport section.

They also took part in the flag lowering ceremony at the American war memorial, met a Second World War veteran when visiting the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and visited the RAF museums at RAF Consingsby and RAF Duxford.

The army section went back to Warcop Training Camp in the Yorkshire Dales.
