Another W Company cadet has won the prestigious position of Lord Lieutenant's Cadet for Northumberland.
Sgt Guy Renner-Thompson of Belford Detachment will be officially installed as the Lord Lieutenant's right hand man at a ceremony next week. The accolade, which is the pinnacle of a cadet's career, is awarded to only one army cadet in the County each year.
Guy will spend the next year or so assisting HM Lord Lieutenant, the Duchess of Northumberland, at high profile events around the area.
Guy, of Belford Detachment, has been with Northumbria ACF for six years and has achieved success in a number of fields. In particular he has represented the County at Brigade and National level shooting competitions on several occasions.
Our congratulations go to Guy for his appointment and the hard work that went behind it.
The cadets of Berwick Detachment have had another successful month, with five of them completing the St John Ambulance Youth First Aid course.
LCpl John Chapman and Cdts Ryan Jeffery, Natalie Spence, Nhiall Farish and Caroline Purdon have slogged away one night a week for the past couple of months to achieve their hard earned qualification.
Thanks to the high level of training delivered by their boss, Lt Keith Marchant, all of the cadets were up to scratch for their end of course assessments.
Well done all.
The Detachment will also move home to the TA Centre on Ravensdowne this week, which will make a pleasant change from the cold and damp of Berwick Barracks!
W Company has started the new year with an advertising campaign geared at recruiting new adults to the Army Cadet Force.
We need enthusiastic and motivated adults to deliver safe and challenging training to our cadets. No prior military experience is necessary as thorough training will be given. New adults need to be aged between 19 - 50 years and undertake selection and induction training. They will also be subject to an Enhanced CRB Disclosure.
In addition to the satisfaction of seeing our youngsters flourish all our uniformed adults are entitled to up to 28-days pay annually and the reimbursement of certain out of pocket expenses. Working with cadets also gives plenty of opportunity to develop personal and professional skills.
