51 at No 10.
Cadet Lucy Williamson of 51 (Orton) Squadron, spent last Wednesday at No 10 Downing Street, and met with many Politicians as well as the Prime Minister Mr Daivd Cameron himself.
Cadet Williamson was not alone in her visit; she joined 40 other cadets from throughout the UK who are members of the Air Training Corps (ATC) and Combined Cadet Forces (CCF). Each attending cadet is a member of the National Marching Band and played a brilliant performance for the prime minister and his guests. The whole event was in aid of the awareness of the expansion and promotion of the CCF Programme.
The Principle Director of Music, Wing Commander Gill Singleton RAFVR(T) said "This has got to be one of the best jobs that the band has done, to play in the gardens of No 10. The immense amount of good it has done the organisation is immeasurable, as always the cadets performed at the top of their game".
Cadet Williamson has only been a member of the ATC and 51 (Orton) Squadron since last December, but already she has made her mark not only on the squadron but also throughout the Corps as a valued member of the National Marching Band and has played at various locations like Twickenham let alone her appearance at No 10 Downing street. Cadet Williamson said “Last Wednesday was a once in a lifetime experience, I met some interesting and highly inspiring people. It was an amazing thing to be invited to be a part of."
