134 (Bedford) Squadron
The first half of the evening saw the cadets take to the stage to give presentations to the 150 strong audience, reflecting on what the Squadron has achieved over the past 12 months.
After a short interval the cadets nervously assembled so that the awards and trophies could be presented.
Every year the Squadron staff have a tough task in choosing the best of the best. After much deliberation over the preceding weeks they were finally able to reveal the winning cadets for each award.

A new trophy was also unveiled - the first new trophy in 10 years. The Squadron Citizenship Award, which is to be presented to a cadet who has given back to the community outside of the Squadron. Cdt Allgar was the deserving winner of this award. He had attended the Shortstown litter pick earlier in the year as well as a recent cleanup we held at the Cardington cemetery. We have also had positive compliments fed back to the Squadron staff from members of the public about his polite and helpful nature. This award was presented by Bedford Borough Mayor Dave Hodgson.

Two Commanding Officers Commendations were presented to Cadet Jordan Assi and CWO Jonathon Bell who had separately helped out in different medical emergencies in the past year. Cdt Assi for encountering a lady that was unconscious in a car park at a cadet event and raising the alarm before assisting her. And CWO Bell who was first on scene of a road traffic accident recently and called the emergency services and provided assistance.
The Squadron Cadet of the Year was presented to Cpl Levi Jack. He has undertaken a vast selection of activities, encompassing flying, shooting, adventure training, various wing and Squadron Camps, first aid, radio communication training, drill and Fieldcraft training. He shows incredible commitment to the Squadron, boasting the best attendance on the unit and regularly arriving early on parade nights to assist for the night ahead.
