Burnham-On-Sea air cadets achieve Duke of Edinburgh Awards

This group of air cadets from Burnham-On-Sea and Weston are celebrating after completing their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

The youngsters - all aged between 14 and 17 - achieved seven bronze and two silver awards by dedicating their time to completing various mental and physical tasks over the last few months.

"They all finished their awards by taking part in a weekend expedition which involved navigation, camp cooking and an overnight camp," the group's spokesman Chris Garrett told

290 Squadron Air Training Corps is based in Burnham-On-Sea at the Cadet Centre near in Highbridge Road (TA8 1LN). The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 7.30pm and 9.45pm. For more information contact Chris Garrett on 07980729980 or via its new website here.
