Early in the year cadets from C Company took part in tree planting in the Ecos Centre & along the Cullybackey Millennium Path. Cullybackey cadets Lance Corporals Sarah Kirk & Alyssa Woods completed this, by taking part in this planting, researching and caring of trees in the area, earning them the Special Edition Platinum Jubilee, Junior Forrester Award.

This award is also available to cadets within 1st (NI) Battalion Army Cadets & encourages cadets to care for their wild places.
