A senior cadet from the individual groups will be chosen by their Detachment or Squadron to have the honour of becoming the Mayor's Cadet for the year. They will be presented at the annual mayor-making meeting with a coloured sash relevant to their force and a Mayor's Cadet medal for the year. These will be returned to be presented to the new Mayor's Cadet for the following year at the annual mayor-making meeting. The Mayor's Cadet Force act as Guards of Honour and take lead in Remembrance as Silent Honour Guard. Their duty as Mayor's Cadet means they will be required to attend relevant civic events (such as flag-raising).
Cpl Isobel Waldie said:
I am incredibly proud to have been selected as the first cadet to represent Bridlington School CCF as the Mayor’s Cadet. I think it is a great opportunity to inspire others to join cadets and promote the opportunities it brings. I am looking forward to gaining new experiences, alongside the Mayor, and fulfilling this role to the best of my ability.
Statement from Flt. Lt M Broadley (Contingent Commander Bridlington School CCF): We count ourselves very lucky to have a Combined Cadet Force in Bridlington School, and are very proud of the cadets who attend. We are fortunate to live and work in the Bridlington community that is very supportive of cadet forces, where we are often able to parade and take part in various events which highlight the character of our cadets.
Cpl Waldie has consistently demonstrated an outstanding attitude throughout her time in CCF, whether focusing on her own achievements or supporting other cadets in theirs.
Whatever camp or course Cpl Waldie attends, or whatever training is undertaken, staff at the CCF can rest assured that Cpl Waldie will offer 100% commitment and great leadership skills. This was shown recently as she successfully completed her Cadet Instructors course ‘to an excellent standard’.
Cpl Waldie’s character truly exemplifies the core values of the RAF – Respect, Integrity, Service before self, strive for Excellence. The School and CCF Unit wishes Cpl. Waldie every success in her year as the Mayor’s Cadet.
