Weathered Out

Whilst we're not normally defeatist when it comes to a bit of snow, the warming after the snow fall followed by the drop in temperature forecast overnight means that there may be significant ice hazards in the morning. As a result, I have decided the cancel the squadron parade altogether on Sunday 5 February.

Please remember that it is our annual inspection on Wednesday (8 Feb), and FS Irvine's last parade. Dress will be No2 (Wedgwood blues).

Daventry ATC Sunday Parade: Cancelled

In light of the forecast weather conditions over the next 24 hours, Dep OC Wg has cancelled the ATC Sunday parade due to be held in Daventry this weekend. As a result, the squadron will revert to normal routine parade times of 1000-1230hrs.
