Fordhouses ATC visit

It was a pleasure to visit 1046 Squadron again today.

Over the past few years, thanks mainly to the work of Club member Les Bouts, we have developed a close relationship with the Squadron helping with the purchase of a minibus for their activities and supporting their overseas trips.

The ATC aims to encourage a spirit of adventure and to develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship – aims which the Rotary movement shares and which the Tettenhall Club looks to encourage. I was pleased to be able to hand over a £500 cheque to help the squadron along to reaching its fundraising target for its next visit to the Battlefields and Service Cemeteries of Normandy – which I know from previous visits has a great effect on the Cadets.

Thanks to Les Bouts and Ian Rigby who accompanied me on the visit.
