Cadets and staff from 1220 (March) Squadron Air Cadets travelled to Holbeach to attend the annual ATC Sunday parade.

At the event, they celebrated the 73rd anniversary of the Air Training Corps formation.

March squadron’s marching band led the way, providing music to accompany the parade as it marched through Holbeach.

The parade started with an inspection, which was conducted by the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire.

A short service was held at Holbeach All Saints Church, where cadets renewed their Air Cadet Promise.

An intake night takes place on Tuesday, February 11 at 7pm. For more information, go to www.1220atc.org.uk.
