ATC Sunday: 7th February

ATC SUNDAY: FEBRUARY 7TH

ATC Sunday was held at St John's on 7th February. Their padre, Revd Edwina Wallace writes:

The Swadlincote 1211 Air Training Corps began its 75th anniversary year celebrations with a parade through Donisthorpe   After laying a wreath at the Donisthorpe War Memorial Gates the parade continued to St John's Church for a special service.  During the service the cadets heard from a member of  the congregation , now in his  90's,  who was enrolled as a cadet 74 years ago. He answered questions posed by the cadets and  told them something about his time as a cadet during the Second World War. The cadets also heard  from a squadron in Hereford which sent greetings at the start of the anniversary celebratory year.
