Mar 132020
 

Cadets and Parents/Guardians will be aware of the current Coronavirus situation within the UK. Guidance from our Headquarters is that we will continue ‘Business as Usual’ unless otherwise instructed. As a Squadron we have put measures in place along with contingency planning that will allow us to operate as normally as possible within the current situation.

Any changes to Squadron Parade Evenings or cancellations will be notified through the Squadron website and/or Cadet Portal. Whilst we will endeavour to keep the Squadron open you are reminded that the RAFAC is a volunteer organisation and the safety and well being of our Cadets and Staff will take precedence.

In the meantime please ensure that you follow government advice regarding hygiene and self-isolation here.
