With the help of local business an air cadet squadron have welcomed a new mini bus.

Air Cadets from 2500 St Neots Squadron will not have to depend on Royal Air Force transport or parents giving them lifts which will provide greater opportunities.

Flight lieutenant Charles Roget RAF VR commanding officer of the squadron said: “Such terrific support has made the vehicle a reality in both the fantastic graphics on the bus and maintenance to keep us safely on the road. We are very grateful for this kind of support.”

A number of businesses in the area got involved to help the cadets with the new transport including Tony and Rebecca Dickson from T D Auto’s, Dave Lewis from Car Parts Express and Mark Bundy from Wheels in Motion.

The squadron were also given a £250 donation from the St Neots branch of the Royal Air Forces Association whose support of the years has been essential.
