CCF: Training day at Nesscliffe

Sunday 5 December 2021

The snowy weather didn't ruin the enthusiasm of the Combined Cadet Force, although the sub-zero temperatures did mean we had to cancel the overnight part of our half termly trip to Nesscliffe.  15 cadets and three staff gave up their Sunday to spend the day on the local training area at Nesscliffe.  It was a beautifully crisp winter's day with snow on the ground and blue skies.  The cadets spent the morning rehearsing and practising a number of Platoon level attacks before being given the ammunition to do it properly. 

It was a great day, enjoyed thoroughly by all, and the hot curry lunch in the fields and spicy apple juice definitely tasted better after a whole morning of running about in the snow.
