Town cadets to receive awards


Members of the Boston RAF Cadets and Boston Police Cadets are to receive an award from the Lord Lieutenant for Lincolnshire, Toby Dennis, after learning how to deal with emergencies and help others.

Today (Saturday), the cadets will be presented with a Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Award.

They are among 150 young people from youth groups across the county to receive the honour.

The youngsters have been learning how they can help in a crisis such as severe weather, a flu pandemic or a long-term power cut.

As well as receiving their awards, they will be putting their skills into action through a series of activities at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue’s Waddington training centre.

If you are involved with a youth group and would like to find out more about the award, email or call 01522 582286.
