Awards Ceremony At Bodelwyddan Castle
Almost 100 people attended the annual awards ceremony of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Clwyd at Bodelwyddan Castle recently where members of the Combined Cadet Force community were honoured.
recipients were recognised by HM Lord-Lieutenant of Clwyd Henry Fetherstonhaugh Esq OBE FRAGS after being nominated by their respective unit leaders and the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association (RFCA) for Wales.
Morris from St. Asaph, a member of St. Brigid’s CCF was presented withHer Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet 2016 badge and certificate for her duties asH.M.’s Lord Lieutenant’s Cadet for the County of Clwyd.
The Lord Lieutenant of Clwyd held his annual award ceremony, in the grand surroundings of the National Portrait Gallery in Bodelwyddan Castle with members of the Reserve Forces, Cadet community and local dignitaries.
One of the most adrenaline-filled areas of the Cadet programme is the adventurous training and Kara has thrived in challenging environments. Expeditions on the Clwydian Mountains, Anglesey and Snowdonia have seen 17-year-old Kara complete the Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award and be selected for a national Cadet voyage to South Africa later this year.
joining the 80-strong Army Section of St Brigid’s School CCF in 2012, Kara has amassed a wealth of experience to reach the rank of Cadet Colour Sergeant. She’s not only gained practical skills but also obtained certificates from the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme and the British Canoe Union 2 Star Award.
For selfless service, the Lord-Lieutenant’s Certificate of Meritorious Service was awarded to Civilian Instructor Maurice Linaker, St. Asaph, also from St Brigid’s CCF, who dedicates his spare time to teaching and training Cadets.
Can you help us to create a unique photo exhibition?
Were you baptised or married in St Asaph Parish Church?
If so, you could help us to create an exhibition of pictures which both celebrates your passage into a new life which started in our church. We would love to celebrate the past and present with you at a key milestone in the life of St Asaph. On 1st June 2017, it will be the 5th anniversary of St Asaph’s city status. With your help, we will create an exhibition of the part that the Parish Church has played in the lives of the people of St Asaph.
We realise that photographs are very precious and ask that you bring us copies, and not the original, if you would like to contribute to this. These will not be returnable.
There will be a “postbox” at the back of the church where you can leave your pictures. Please clearly write the names of the bride and groom, or the parents and children in the picture, together with the year of the photograph, to help us compile the exhibition timeline. It would be helpful if you could write a contact phone number as well, just in case we need to check a detail or two with you.
If you would like to help create the display itself, please contact Marion Hughes by email on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We look forward to celebrating together in June!
And Thank you!
