CADETS from Marham are climbing their way to success in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme.

The members of 864 (Marham) DF Air Training Corps are using a climbing wall for the physical section of the Award. They have already started the Expedition section which they will complete later this year.

The unit's newest recruit - 13 year-old Jordan Taylor said: “It was brilliant”, while 15 year-old Alex Owen from Shouldham added: “It gave me a real adrenalin rush.”

Their climbing instructor - SAC Lisa Conway said: “For beginners, they have progressed really well.”

SAC Conway has devised a challenging programme for the cadets to meet the requirements of the award.

The unit commander, Flight Lieutenant Tony Hall said: “This is yet another great example of the excellent facilities provided for Air Cadets at Marham.”

Any boys and girls aged 13 plus from the Marham area who are interested in joining in the fun should contact Tony Hall on 01366 377127 or 07900 518153.
