Westminster Day Trip: Monday 13 August 12

We can now confirm the details for the the tour of the Houses of Parliament, plus visits to other Westminster attractions. Ten cadets have been selected and identified. Letters with consent slips were issued during Sunday's Parade.

Transport will be by squadron minibus. We will be departing from the Squadron at 0655hrs and returning to Coventry early evening. Cadets will be instructed to call home as we pass the M25, about 90 minutes from Coventry.

Costs: Cadets need to bring £5 contribution for transport (minibus+congestion charge), plus enough spending money to cover any museum entries and for lunch. We may also resort to public transport if weather dictates (or feet get tired!), so bring any Oyster Cards if you have them. We estimate you need to bring approx £15 - £20.

Dress & Kit: Wear No2 (Wedgewood Blue) dress and bring a small daysack with jerseys and issued Jeltex foul-weather jackets and suncream (the forcast is for rain and sun). Cadets will need their 3822s and any student ID may also be useful for transport consessions. Remember to have a good breakfast before leaving home and bring plenty of fluids and snacks to keep you going throughout.
