Minibus boost for Welwyn Garden City cadets
BUDDING aviators in WGC have been given a free minibus, thanks to a donation from a Hertfordshire-based charity.
Staff and members of the 1166 (Welwyn Garden City) squadron of the Air Training Cadets collected the vehicle from Palmers Citroen in Watford after they were given the necessary cash by the West Herts Charity Trust.
The 15-seater minibus will be used to take the cadets to weekend flying, gliding and camping events.
Chris Watts, the chairman of the squadron’s civilian committee, described the donation as a “fantastic boost” for the cadets.
The 57-year-old added: “I want to thank the West Herts Charity Trust for their generosity and help.
