____________________

It's not all Drill, Flying and running around in combats, you know!  As well as the normal Air Cadet activities, we also hold a number of social activities. This helps create a good sense of morale amongst cadets by mingling in a different environment, as well as getting to know your fellow cadet mates better in a social atmosphere.

In the past, we have had evenings out doing such activities as LaserQuest, Ice-skating, and Ten-Pin Bowling. We also have day trips to Theme Parks (such as Chessington World of Adventures and Thorpe Park), as well as Airshows at RAF Duxford, RAF Waddington and Southend.  We normally have a couple of Parties each year too - sometimes in fancy dress!  We also hold a number of events to raise money for the Squadron, and this has included Quiz Nights, a Barn Dance and Fund-raising Dinners.

Squadron Ball

In March 2008, 2187 Squadron celebrated its 60th Anniversary with by holding a ball.  All the boys dressed in their best 'blues' and the girls wore their best ball dresses (see top picture).  Entertainment was provided by live band Redonizom, which includes two ex-cadets of the squadron (one of whom is one of our Adults Sergeants!).  Over one hundred people attended, and the band ensured that the dancefloor was full all night.  Another successful squadron event!

Mess Night

Each year our squadron holds a dinner & dance, known as a Mess Night. The Mess Night is where the annual awards for personal achievement are presented, either by the Commanding Officer or a VIP guest. After the dinner and awards there is a disco, and a good opportunity to let your hair down! Use the Next button below to read more about Mess Nights, or click here to see some photos from the 2007 Mess Night..
