Whickham Squadron did themselves proud on the Monday before Christmas. The cadets, staff and committee attended Morrisons Blaydon where they worked for 8hours to carry out a bag pack where we raised over £650.00. Congratulations to all of you, you did yourselves proud. Thank you to Morrisons and all their customers. Without them this would not be possible.

The Squadron Christmas party was held at The Volvo Tyne Theatre where we watched Cinderella:
The magical pantomime including Prince Charming, Buttons, the Ugly Sisters and, of course, the Fairy Godmother who turns a pumpkin and mice into a carriage and horses ... but why doesn't the glass slipper disappear at midnight?!
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Special thank you to Zoe for organising the event and sweeties.

With this years special Remembrance Sunday Parades where it was the 100th Anniversary. The cadets paraded at Whickham High Street, where the squadron and band led the parade along the high street up to the Cenotaph, they also attended two services at St Mary's Church. After this the cadets and staff went along to the Metro Centre for our next parade, this was a very special occasion as the band were allowed to lead the parade for the very first time, starting off at House of Fraser leading to Time Square. The Cadets did themselves proud once again.
