1349 (Woking) Squadron recently gained a minibus courtesy of Surrey Police. The minibus had reached the end of its service life with Surrey Police but now continues in public service with 1349 (Woking) Squadron.
At the handover, which took place outside Mount Browne Surrey Police Headquarters, Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey, David Munro, said “I’m pleased that the donation of this vehicle to Woking Sqn of the Air Training Corps will support the activities of the Squadron as the Cadets and their leaders can start to look forward to resuming training in the weeks ahead. I have great respect for the achievements of these young people, that includes learning valuable skills and sharing unique experiences that will continue to benefit our communities across Surrey.”
Accepting the keys, Flying Officer Justin Muir, Commanding Officer of 1349 (Woking) Squadron said “We are extremely grateful to Surrey Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey. I’m delighted this minibus will continue its public service with the Air Cadets - it will help enormously with activities as we get back to normality”. He went on “We expect to resume shooting, fieldcraft, flying, gliding and attend other events our cadets enjoy – having this minibus will allow us to undertake more activities and make them available to more cadets.”
A number of ex cadets from 1349 (Woking) Squadron have gone on to join the Police Force.
