Cadets take command of new building
London & South East Region Headquarters and Middlesex Wing Air Cadets, along with the Combined Cadet Force have moved into their new building by the main gate at RAF Northolt.
The newly refurbished 1960s building is quite a change from the previous which Air Cadets London & South East resided - built in 1916, it was the oldest building on the Station! Their new location overlooks the recently installed Station Gate Guard – a Hurricane - and allows for much more room for the permanent staff, ensuring that meetings, interviews, events and the day-to-day running of operations takes place in a much more inviting space.
The new building was put to the test this weekend when the London & South East Region Headquarters of the Air Cadets held their first Regional Council Meeting with nearly 20 staff able to meet very comfortably in the building to carry out their important business.
Regional Commandant for the London & South East Region of the Air Cadets, Group Captain Les Hakin RAFVR(T) said:
“I am pleased with our new accommodation, which is a great improvement. The additional space certainly makes meetings like today a lot more comfortable and I am confident this new accommodation will be an asset to us all.”
Lets hope we’ll this building is as sturdy as the last!
