St. John Ambulance CADETS OF THE YEAR

At the recent County Cadet of the Year Competition two young ladies from Penkridge Quad Division, St John Ambulance, secured both the Staffordshire County Cadet and Deputy positions. Both girls have been members of the Organisation for some years.

Miss Freya Burgess was invested as the Lord Lieutenant's Cadet for 2009/10 and Miss Rebekah Manifold as her Deputy. Presentations took place at the Young Achievers Reception held at the County Buildings Stafford in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire - Mr James Hawley. Freya will now go on to represent Staffordshire at the National Cadet of the Year Competition in Nottingham early next year.

Andrew Hughes, Assistant Cadet Leader said "Everyone at Penkridge Division is immensely proud of the two Cadets and congratulates them both on all their hard work and effort which helped them achieve their positions. We are sure they will prove worthy ambassadors for the County and the Organisation." Freya herself commented "It is both an honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to represent St john Youth in Staffordshire. Rebekah and I are looking forward to all that our positions entail over the coming year and will endevour to do our best at all times".
