Following their recent success in local competitions the Band and
Corporate Communications team of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron Air Training
Corps where once again pulling out all the stops during the weekend
in their attempt to reach the corps national finals.
The Nuneaton based cadets joined forces with teams from other squadrons
within the Warwickshire and Birmingham area to compete against six
other wing teams at the Central and East Regional field day at Royal
Air Force Wittering on Sunday 7th September.
The 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron band put on a magnificent display,
several new pieces of music had been added to running order. Unfortunately
despite all the hard work and preparation their attempt to reach
the national finals was unsuccessful, they did however manage a
very healthy score, which earned them forth place.
The Nuneaton Squadrons Corporate Communications team however managed
to hit the right spot with the judges. In the face of tough opposition
from many of the other wing entries their display and presentation
was selected as the winning entry.
Flt Lt Hincks Corporate Communications officer for 121 Squadron
said, "This is the first year that we've entered the Corporate
Communications competition and apparently the first time any Squadron
from the Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing has come first at regional
level. We were spurred on by the success that we have been having
within the local press. You could say that our achievement in this
competition is partly attributable to the quality of the coverage
given to our activities by our local media."
