Army Engagement event at The Deanery CE Academy, Swindon with Colonel Gary McDade, Commander of the Army South West.
Last night (8th November 2023) Wiltshire ACF joined other Armed Forces units in the Army Engagement event. Our Cadets and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs) engaged with members of the public who were invited, also members of the Regular and Reserve Army units within Wiltshire. Fostering relationships with the aim of enhancing the Cadet Experience.
Major Tim Stokes had this to say "Massive thanks to our Professional Support Staff (PSS) who managed to put together a professional-looking stand, which given other units in attendance is a credit to the efforts put in.
Our cadets were exactly what was required to bring a different perspective to the conversations. Thanking them for their time, and exemplary behaviour during the evening.
Any future events like this, I believe should be fully supported, I can see the potential benefits from us just being in the room."
Wiltshire ACF Corps of Drums and Bugles were also in attendance, playing a mix of Bugle and Flute music for the guests as they arrived at the event.
