Community Events 

Hexham Squadron is very active in our local community – it’s good to help out other organisations and it also gets us seen around the area!

 

Some of the main events we do every year include;

 

 

Northumberland County Show – helping the show organisers make sure the event runs smoothly.  We can be moving equipment, helping with show jumps, marshalling the public and giving out leaflet and stickers – all in the space of one day!  It’s hard work, but good fun.

 

Hexham Bonfire – helping Hexham Round Table with selling of luminous things and collecting for their charities. 

 

Belsay Horse Trials – not strictly local, but it used to be in Hexham!  We help over two days – primarily with marshalling the public, parking cars and helping with the show jumping arena.

 

Collecting – we collect on the streets of Hexham for the RAF Association ‘Wings’ Appeal in September and the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in November.  Both of these activities raise a lot of money for the charities, and this goes to help those who are, or have been, members of our Armed Forces (or a dependent of someone who has).  Last year we raised nearly £1500 for these charities.  We expect all cadets to take part in these collections, either for a full day or just to give up a few hours of their time to help those who need us.
