Master, John Poulten visits Army Cadet Force Visitors Day at Crowborough
As you know, our Charity supports the City of London and North East Sector of the ACF, which covers a large area from Hackney in the North to Upminster in the East.
After a briefing by the C.O. Lt.Col. Larry Davies, we were taken around the camp to see various groups of Cadets, aged mainly between 13 and 17 years of age. Some were away on their first camp and some were “old hands”.
The emphasis of the ACF is to teach self-reliance and self-respect as well as respect for others and team work. What we found was enthusiastic boys and girls – keen to succeed and improve. They were extremely positive, very polite and forthcoming.
It was a delight to meet them.
Our chosen cadet was CSjt Jennifer Bier (pictured) receiving her award and cheque.
All in all …an excellent day.
