The cadets of 2534 (Fakenham) Sqn were recently given a quantity of wildflower seed as part of a competition to encourage them to sow a wildflower meadow. The squadron has no land on which to create such a meadow and so Fakenham Learning Community was approached to see if they could help.
It so happens that the group had just been given access to an overgrown allotment in the town part of which they planned to turn into an orchard under-planted with a wildflower meadow. As a result three cadets, who are taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, have joined with the Fakenham Learning Community to help with this project.
The Commanding Officer of the squadron, Flt Lt Nick Potter, said: “This was yet another activity to add to the many opportunities open to young people in the Air Training Corps. I’m glad that the squadron was able to take part in a local community activity such as this.”
