For the 5th day of ArmedForcesWeek, the focus is on our cadets.
The cadets are a fantastic organisation for young people, opening up a huge amount of unique opportunities for our youngsters. As well as confidence, leadership, teamwork, self-discipline and pride, you could learn survival skills with the army cadets, learn how to sail with the sea cadets and even how to pilot a small plane in the air cadets.
Here in Sherwood, we have 4 different army cadet units spread out across the constituency. There's one based in Hucknall, one in Blidworth, one in Clipstone and one in Ollerton. We also have a squadron of air cadets based at the Rolls Royce site in Hucknall, and our nearest sea cadets are based in Mansfield and in Worksop.
It's a truly unique way to learn new skills, make new friends, keep fit and to help develop yourself as an individual.
