Shropshire Army Cadet Force

Shropshire Army Cadet Force 2Shropshire Army Cadet Force. Surely the ultimate youth club! Still well funded, the activities that cadets enjoy are remarkable, including abseiling, caving, kayaking, open canoeing, rock-climbing, mountain walking, skiing, mountaineering, diving and white-water rafting.  I joined the Lord-Lieutenant at the Official Opening of the Church Stretton Detachment’s new Detachment Hut. There was some fabulous music including some very competent bugle playing and also some interesting displays – I was shown how to assemble an SA80 Assault Rifle – a skill that I hope I won’t actually need.   Like so many things, the Cadet Force depends upon the energy of volunteers, and Sir Algernon made a point of thanking them for their extraordinary dedication and hard work.
