Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force Parade

David with Col Les Webb TD, ACF


On Sunday I attended the Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force Parade in Ramsbottom. There was a reception in St Paul’s Church with the new Mayor of Bury Councillor John Byrne which was followed by a short service and wreath laying in memory of all those who have fallen in the service of our Country.

Ramsbottom was absolutely heaving with people attracted by the Parade and the East Lancashire Railway World War Two weekend. The Cadets play an important role in Army recruitment and helping to train young people and give them goals to aim for in life working in partnership with other organisations especially the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme.
