Air cadets in King’s Lynn are celebrating after being awarded a £29,100 grant.

The money, given by the Heritage Lottery Fund will enable the 42F Squadron Air Training Corps to work on a two-year project to commemorate  the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force in 2018.

Cadet flight sergeant Jason Bullock said: “We are thrilled to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund to do this project.

“We are confident the project will support young people to look at their history, be active in the community and help to inform the next generation.”

The project, led by cadets and assisted by volunteer staff, will focus on Norfolk airfield.

The cadets will research aircraft and activities in the county over the last 100 years.

They will also be working alongside the Heritage Centre at RAF Marham.

Robyn Llewellyn, head of HLF East of England, said: “We’re delighted that money raised by National Lottery players can support these enthusiastic cadets to engage with their local heritage.”
