The swimming team from 1220 (March) Squadron Air Cadets recently took part in the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing Swimming Gala. A team of 15 travelled to Peterborough Regional Pool where the gala was hosted.
The cadets were split into four groups by age and sex and competed against the 30 other squadrons in the Wing. Events included freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and the dreaded butterfly; the 1220 team was able to enter a cadet into most races.
On the day Cadet Joe Goodman won a Bronze medal in the junior boys breaststroke.
Following the Wing gala the Wing Sports Officer selects cadets from around the Wing to represent Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Wing at the Region Swimming competition. Cadet Flight Sergeant Lauren Arnold was chosen from 1220 Squadron.
The Region competition was held at RAF Cranwell and CFS Arnold competed in the freestyle and individual relays. She earned a Bronze medal for the freestyle event and was also presented with a Wing representation certificate.
