A busy first weekend of cadet life at Rotherham saw Cpl Belk attending the Activity First Aid course at our Wing Headquarters and a bunch of cadets running around Thornes Park in freezing conditions to compete for the cross country.
Thanks to their excellent efforts we managed to gain third place in the overall completion, and also third for males; junior men and youths. All the young people who attended deserve our thanks for their contribution. Of particular note where Sgt Nortcliffe, our first past the line in junior men, Cdt Richardson who came a supersonic first overall in the youths section, Cdt Hepplestone our fastest in the junior boys, Cdt Weyman our only junior girl, who managed tenth overall, and Cdt Middleton who was our speediest senior girl. Of course there have to be both ends to the scale, and we do like to be first at a number of activities, so congratulations to Cpl Johnson for coming absolute last across all ranges with her breakneck lack of speed and plodding past the finish line just in time for next year’s event.
Thanks go to the all the staff for supporting the activity and the youth’s team who went up twice and stole the junior men’s thunder.
