Open Evening

216 Squadron - Open Evening

Date: Monday 16th September 2019
Time: 1915 Arrival for 1930 start
Location: 216 (Redditch) Squadron

At the Squadron we hold regular open evenings throughout the year where we welcome a number of potential cadets and their parents to explain more about the Squadron and the Air Cadets. We will run demonstrations of some of the activities our cadets undertake and you'll have a chance to ask the staff and cadets more about the Squadron. Please ensure you arrive no earlier than the time stated above, and await members of the Squadron to let you in.

Visited us at a previous open evening?

If you have previously attended a Squadron open evening, but your child was too young to join we would encourage attendance at this open evening again to allow registration for the new intake. Cadets will attend from the next parade night if they intend on joining and there are a number of important training dates they will need to registered for at this open evening.
