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 Aimee Gregson said:
"I am extremely honoured to have been recognised as being capable of being the Mayors cadet in Bridlington. I am thrilled that I was chosen for the position and being the first Air Cadet to hold the post. I am looking forward to be at the side of the Mayor when attending functions, it will also be good for the Squadron. Hopefully with me in this position it might bring more young people into the Cadets and I will be able to use the opportunity to promote 252 (Bridlington) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets."
Warrant Officer Rob Hill, Officer Commanding 252(Bridlington) Squadron stated
“As always it is an honour and privilege to take part in the events Bridlington holds. The cadets take pride when on parade representing the Royal Air Force Air Cadets in their home town. I think it is tremendous for all the cadet forces of Bridlington to have the opportunity to put a chosen cadet forward to represent their organisation at all the official events of the town as Mayors Cadet. Cpl Aimee Gregson is one of the older cadets and has achieved numerous things whilst in the cadets. She enjoys being part of the Squadron Drum Corps and also instructing some of the junior cadets.”
