    Part of Arden Squadron’s Aerospace Officer, CI Rob Hunt’s job is looking for ways to meet one of the ATC’s aims, that of promoting a practical interest in aviation.  As part of that, one of the visits Rob arranged this year was a tour of Marshall Aerospace in Cambridge.  This was combined with a visit to Cambridge’s small but innovative Science Centre.  Flt Lt Seymour said, after talking to the cadets about the trip “We would like to thank Marshalls for their kind hospitality, both the tour and lunch, it was both informative and interesting and clearly caught the cadets interest.  I would like to thank Rob for his hard work in setting this up, and also the staff who accompanied the cadets.”  Unfortunately we cant give away details of the tour, so anyone who wants to know what Marshall does, will need to arrange their own tour.  However the museum had a number of interactive displays, which the cadets enjoyed and competed on, and this is also well worth a visit.

  5. The Squadron recently received a thank you letter for our recent "Big Chinwag".  The cadets got to spend the night chatting to each other and in exchange they all gave a £1.  The money goes to help Age Concern stop elderly people being lonely.  Our thanks to all the cadets who participated.


    Look no further - we still have for sale the final 5 of the dozen and a half bowls clocks that we had made. All proceeds go towards Club funds.

    These are brand new quartz/battery clocks set in original, lignum vitae bowls, polished to bring out the grain of the wood so that each is effectively unique.

    The face of the clock is approximately 7cm or 2½ inches across. The bowl itself will vary according to the original size of bowl it’s made from.

    Our price for each bowl clock is £22.

    When they've gone ... they've gone as we will not be able to have any more made at this price.

    Similar clocks marketed by Drakes Pride are advertized online for £60 or more. For answers to any any questions or to buy a clock please contact John G directly or via this website.

  7. We are grateful to Mrs Birkett of Thornton Road, Goxhill who has donated to the Club two pairs of bowls. They originally belonged to her husband and her father-in-law, both of whom were once members of Goxhill Bowls Club.

    The bowls will be added to those already available to be borrowed by new bowlers without their own bowls (or, as occasionally happens, members who have forgotten their own bowls).

    One of this years highlights for 2286 (Arden) Squadron was announcing that it had for the second year running made the finals of the Schools Aerospace Challenge, being one of the top ten chosen to attend a course at Cranfield University where the winners were selected.  The Squadron was one of only three ATC squadrons selected.  Although this year was not to be 2286’s year, the five days spent at Cranfield were to be amongst the best experiences the cadets, Cpl Tommy Webb and Sgt Michael Payne, had enjoyed during their time at cadets.  These experiences included a session with two RAF Hawk pilots, a lesson in the airborne classroom and the opportunity to freefall parachute in Milton Keynes wind tunnel.  CI Rob Hunt, Team Manager and himself a previous winner, said “The team worked really hard on the Research and Design and we were very proud of them making it to the top ten, again.”
