CADETS from 233 Pershore Squadron, Air Training Corps, enjoyed success on the ground as they competed in the annual West Mercian Wing Athletics competition.

The squadron competed in various track and field events across several age categories for both men and women. Individual successes saw the cadets bring home medals across the board, placing 3rd in the U15 Boys trophy, and winning the U17 men’s trophy and overall men’s trophy.

West Mercian Wing covers the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and the Black Country.

With over 29 squadrons and 1,000 cadets in the wing, 233 squadron had a lot of competition.

Officer commanding flight lieutenant Rebecca Pritchett said; “This is a result of the determination and drive to succeed that many of our cadets have. This should inspire them to further success”.
