Cadets visit hits the target for Burnham-On-Sea MP Tessa Munt

Burnham-On-Sea MP Tessa Munt tried her hand at archery when she paid a visit to Normandy Company of the Somerset Cadet Battalion on the top of the Mendips to get a brief taste of cadet life.

The Somerset Cadet Battalion (The Rifles) Army Cadet Force has about 1,000 cadets aged between 12-18 throughout the county, including the Burnham area.

The Army Cadet Force is one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations.

Following a briefing on the work of the Cadet Association and the Wessex Reserve Forces, Tessa visited the cadets on camp and chatted with them about what they get up.

She also tried her hand at archery, as pictured, and also watched target shooting and the cadets maintaining their rifles. Tessa said: "I had a fantastic day with the Cadets and I am amazed by the range of activities they get to try. It is a fantastic learning experience and I would urge more youngsters to sign up."
