Remembrance Day Parades

ALL cadets and staff are to attend this COMPULSORY parade. Absences will only be authorised if given in writing by parents.


The Squadron will be participating in two parades this Sunday. The majority of the Squadron will be taking part in the local service in Baginton village, but as there isn't enough room in the church for the whole squadron and the parishoners, a smaller contingent will join other local units for the civic parade in Coventry's War Memorial Park.

Who's parading where was decided on Wednesday night. (If you didn't volunteer for Coventry, then parade at Baginton!)

Timings for the two parades are different:

BAGINTON - Everyone to be IN the squadron at 0920hrs. We shall finish back at the Sqn at 1230hrs (normal time). Parents are welcome to attend the church service at Baginton, but as parking is limited at the church cars should be left at the Squadron.

COVENTRY - Mustering on Spencer Avenue (near Spencer Park), to arrive between 0945hrs and 1000hrs. You will be aware that road closures are in place for the parade, so routes to the muster point may be convoluted, and busy with other parents! The parade is expected to finish and disperse by 1200hrs.

DRESS: Uniform is No2 (Wedgewood blues and jerseys) for cadets, No1's for uniformed staff. WEAR WARM BASE LAYERS! Everyone is to bring their own poppy and church offering.

Rock Climbing Night - 15 Nov 12

The indoor rock-climbing evening on Thursday 15 November has been extended from 2 places to 7 places (plus a reserve). Places are on a First-Come, First-Served basis, however we must fill ALL of the six extra places to make this affordable! No previous climbing experience is nessessary, and all equipment is provided.

Transport will be provided by minibus, leaving SHQ at 1840hrs and returning at approximately 2145hrs. The cost is subsidised to just £10 per person for a 2 hour session.

If you would like to try out this great outdoor-sport in the warm indoors, then bring in your money to reserve your place!
