This is an annual gathering of local squadrons, who take it in turns to host the event. March Squadron’s marching band led the way, providing music to accompany the parade as it marched through Holbeach.

The parade started with an inspection, which was conducted by the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire. The parade then set off through the town centre to Holbeach All Saints Church, where a short service was held. The cadets renewed their Air Cadet Promise and listened to readings from the bible.

Afterwards the cadets and staff proceeded to the local leisure club to warm up with a cup of tea and biscuits.

1220 is currently recruiting. Our intake night is on Tuesday 11th February at 7:00PM. For further information, please visit www.1220atc.org.uk.
