Victory for St Albans and Harpenden police cadets in competition
Volunteer Police Cadets from St Albans and Harpenden emerged victorious as they competed in an event to mark Armed Forces Day.
Representatives from the group attended the celebration in Harpenden on Saturday, June 24, where they spent part of the day competing against fellow cadet groups from other organisations.
Those taking part included the Harpenden Air Cadets, St Georges Army Cadets and the Luton Sea and Royal Marine Cadets.
The cadets took part in three challenges including drill, tug of war and climbing and abseiling.
The police cadets took top spot, taking home the Armed Forces Day trophy.
Sergeant Steve Alison, who leads the St Albans and Harpenden Cadets, said: “This was a fantastic and well-attended event to celebrate our Armed Forces.
“All the cadets thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were pleased to be crowned winners against some tough opposition. I’d like to thank the organisers for having us on the day.”
