Air cadets from Wisbech take a rest from exams to spend a night bowling

AIR Cadets from Wisbech were bowled over when they went head to head to find their Ten Pin champions during an activity evening.

Around 25 cadets and staff from 272 (Wisbech) Air Cadets went to Bowl2Day at Guyhirn to test their skills, the event was organised to help youngsters wind down from their recent exam preparations.

After sharing a meal together, the cadets played two games. Civilian instructor Laura Nixon said: “This event was a good chance for the cadets to mix with others on the squadron that they might not normally get a chance to do on a regular evening.”

Top male bowler was Cadet Corporal Thomas Woolford, 15; and champion female bowler was Cadet Emma Clarke, 14. Emma said: “It felt really good to win the trophy this year, it was a real achievement.”

The Wisbech squadron will be taking part in more activities during the summer months including summer camps and adventure training.
