🏆 Huge success at Wing Activities Day for 8️⃣7️⃣8️⃣ Squadron! 🏆

On Sunday, 30 cadets and staff from the Squadron competed against all other Squadrons in Dorset & Wilts Wing in an annual competition known as 'Wing Activities Day'. We finished in 2nd place for the third year running, scoring even more points than last year!

Being runner up, out of 30 Squadrons for the third year in a row, shows that we are consistently one of the highest performing Squadrons in the Wing. All the cadets and staff worked hard for months preparing for the competition, including weekend work, showing their enthusiasm and dedication.

Wing Activities Day sees all Squadrons compete in the following categories:

👣 Foot Drill
🚩 Banner Drill
⛑ First Aid
⚙️ Leadership
✈️ Aircraft Recognition
🎙 Public Speaking
🛠 Aero Modelling
📸 Photography

They also had a chance to sample other activities, such as:
🚲 Mountain Biking
🏹 Archery
🧗‍♀️ Climbing
🛢 Assault Course
🖌 CVQO info stand
💚 The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation info stand
🥾 Royal Air Force Air Cadets DofE info stand
🛩 RAF Recruitment stand

Overall, an incredibly enjoyable and successful day for the Squadron! Well done to everyone, a true team effort 👏👏👏
