“Staff and cadets will be on hand to show people what they do, show them around our squadron, answer their questions and hopefully give them the information they need,” a spokesperson for 817 Squadron said.

“Anyone aged between 12 and 17 who wants to join as a cadet, or anyone over 20 who might be thinking of volunteering for a good cause, we have something for you.

“We are actively recruiting, seeking new cadets and volunteers to help our squadron grow, so come and join us,” the spokesperson added.
