Leigh GMACF Cadets, Leigh

In News by admin


Cadets and staff at the Leigh Detachment of Greater Manchester Army Cadet have recently received the welcome news that they are to receive a new Cadet Training Centre to replace the veteran building they currently train at, which was first commissioned in the 1960’s. It will be replaced by a new two-storey new build, which will be shared with a detachment from the Air Training Corps.

The new build, commissioned by the North West Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, comes at an exciting moment, as the Army Cadet Detachment in Leigh have been steadily building its numbers over the last 12 months and now regularly parade over 30 Cadets and recruits on training nights.

Detachment Commander, Staff Sergeant Peter Lloyd said, “We’re grateful for the RFCA’s plan to build a new centre – the old hut has seen many former Cadets go on from here to Regular Service, and then to return here, years later, as Adult Instructors, and now we’ll have more training space, both inside and outside the building to continue that tradition”.
