It is with regret that we must inform you today that the National Youth Agency has confirmed we will be moving into RED COVID Alert status for the duration of the English lockdown over the next 4 weeks.
This means we must pause again our efforts to resume Face to Face activity, however our efforts so far will stand us in good stead for when we are given the green light to resume once again. We appreciate that this may be disappointing news however we are sure you can appreciate the safety of our cadets and volunteers is paramount.
During this period of time we will be continuing our Virtual Parade Night offering and details will continue to be promulgated as we have done over the past months.
Lockdown 2.0 we know will present varying challenges for you all which will equally could be unique to yourself dependant on your own personal circumstances so please remember that the squadron is here to support you in anyway we can. You are more than welcome to contact the squadron via email.
Cadets across the country celebrated the 79th anniversary of formation of the Air Training Corps on Sunday 2nd February 2020.
607 (Wearmouth) Squadron was no different, we joined in celebrations and a service of thanksgiving at St. Andrews Church in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The Air Training Corps, part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets organisation, was formed by royal warrent on the 5th February 1941 and Air Cadets mark this date with celebrations on the closest Sunday to the anniversary, the Sunday is referred to as ATC Sunday. ATC Sunday is always a great opportunity for reflection and thanks for the organisation that a brought us all together with a shared interest.
