It was open house at the headquarters of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron on the 1 st September when the Squadrons Civilian Committee invited parents and guardians to attend the units Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The AGM is an important occasion in the Squadron's calendar as it's an excellent opportunity to go through all the units achievements over the past 12 months and get feedback from both the Cadets and their parents as to how they think the Squadron is performing.
The AGM is also an ideal opportunity to highlight the importance of the activities of the Squadron Civilian Committee and the fact that the committee continually needs the help of parents and guardians to help raise funds so that the Squadron can keep on providing a wide range of activities for the cadets.
John Newbery the Squadron's Civilian Committee Chairman explained how the Civilian Committee is a most important link in a squadron's administration, not only because it administers the squadron's finances, but also because it looks after the welfare and recreational side of a squadron's activities, as distinct from the training and parade side of things. He went on to outline how much money the Squadron needs to raise each year in order to maintain and run the Squadron minibus, which is a vital asset used to carry the cadets to camps and band events etc.
In closing the AGM John Newbery said, "I would like to thank all the parents that attended the AGM for their positive feedback. It was quite apparent that they were also having positive feedback from their sons and daughters who attend the Squadron. This is a credit to all the Uniform and Civilian staff of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron. Thanks to everyone for their support and help during the last 12 months"
