I would like to give a big welcome back to all of our members, old and new, for what is hoped to be a steady return to normality!
Our exciting plan is to start by establishing 'group hubs', and you will see some pictures below where this has already started to take place. Please be assured that all of the required systems (such as facemasks, distancing and sanitising) will be in place to help prevent the risk of Covid-19 infection.
The transition from hub training to training in individual
detachments will take place at a point in the future when it is safe to
do so. Each Company has its own schedule so, if you have not yet been
contacted by your Detachment/Hub/Company admin, please be patient - they
are working as hard as they can to make their reopenings happen
successfully and safely. In order to achieve this, I would ask you to
assist our organisation by ensuring that your contact details are
up-to-date, as there are still some restrictions on room/building
capacity so attendance lists may need to be prepared in advance.
Plans for residential events are already being drawn up, including training weekends and this year's Annual Camp (subject to the predicted progression on the Government's 'Road Map'). These can only take place if we - the cadets and Adult Volunteers of Yorkshire (N&W) ACF - work together to make them happen, and I am in no doubt that that will be the case.
I hope you are all looking forward to your return, and I personally look forward to seeing you all over the next few months.
Good luck and stay safe.
Colonel Jim Greenlee, Commandant,
Yorkshire (N&W) ACF
