Squadron raising profile with new gazebo

July 6, 2017

The cadets of 470 (Falkirk) Squadron of the Air Training Corps have been making good use of their new gazebo. 

They recently supported the Falkirk Race for Life event, securing a prominent pitch at the start line which was an ideal spot to grab people’s attention and raise awareness of the Squadron and the ATC.

Approximately 1000 people took part in the Cancer Research-organised event at Callendar Park.

The Squadron – which is part of West Scotland Wing ATC – purchased the 4×3 metre gazebo, feather flags, custom table cover and accessories using a Highland RFCA grant.

Pilot Officer VR(T) Marc Esson, the Squadron’s Adjutant, said: “The new gazebo and equipment is really proving its worth and is a fantastic PR device for the Squadron.”

The Race for Life event at Falkirk provided an ideal opportunity to raise the squadron’s profile.
