Team-Building with Walton Cadets

Last Thursday, I visited Walton Army Cadets, a detachment led by Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant Charlie Cooper. I am a big fan of the army and sea cadets, and was thoroughly impressed by the Walton detachment. The cadets is a great - positive - way to engage youngsters in learning practical life skills, team-building and having fun.

The cadets take girls and boys from the age of 12. They take part in various activities (including working towards Duke of Edinburgh awards), go on weekend camps, and undertake fundraising events and collections for charities – including the Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes. You can find out more about them on their website here.

As you can see, below, no-one gets off lightly. I enjoyed taking part in a team-building exercise, getting logs, cones and team-mates across a series of barrels. A big thanks to all the cadets for a great evening - and their patience with me getting across that log!
