The cadets were approached by Horsham District Council and asked if they would like to take part in the celebration. Always willing to support worthy causes, the Squadron deployed the Sussex Climbing Wall and set up an impressive Air Cadet stand.

Owing to the fantastic weather, the climbing wall was much in demand. Throughout the day the cadets and staff worked tirelessly so everyone could experience rock climbing on the ‘Air Cadet’ climbing wall.

Officer Commanding of 1015 (Horsham) Air Cadets, Flying Officer Richard Foster said: “The celebration of Armed Forces Day was a tremendous success, and we were delighted to help out by laying-on the climbing wall.

“It proved to be hugely popular and we hope that everyone that had a go enjoyed themselves.

“This was a fantastic event hosted by Horsham District Council, it shows the Council’s commitment to the local Armed Services, and we hope to be able to help out next year should it return.”

Climbing is one of many activities offered by Horsham Air Cadets, they also have the chance to do many activities including visits to RAF Stations, Adventure Training & the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
