Members of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron will be going On Air in search of new adult recruits during a live radio broadcast on Friday 23 March.
Media Communications Officer for 121 Squadron, Flt Lt Paul Hincks said, “We were keen to be able to do something locally to support the current nationwide Adult Recruitment campaign. We considered issuing a press release to our local newspapers but eventually decided to try something a little more adventurous. We approached Julie-Anna Needham, the BBC Correspondent for Nuneaton, Bedworth & North Warwickshire with a view to arranging an interview on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio and after a flurry of e-mail and telephone messages we managed to arrange an interview”.
“By getting onto the radio we hope to be able to reach a much larger audience, which covers the catchment area of most if not all of the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing. We hope to be able to promote the Adult Recruitment campaign together with the Air Cadet Organisation in general including some of our Squadron and Wing achievements”.
So if you’re available why not join the members of 121 ( Nuneaton) Squadron by listening in on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio 94.8FM, 104FM, 103.7FM and Digital on Friday 23 March. We are currently scheduled for live broadcast during the breakfast show and should be on air at some time between 08:50 and 10:00hrs.
