Woodley and Earley Fireworks Night
Each year Earley Squadron assists the Woodley and Earley Lions Club in their annual fireworks night. The Squadron provides additional people to watch the front line to ensure crowd safety during this event. We also watch for members of the public trying to gain entry without paying and ensure those already watching the fireworks do so in a safe way. For more information about the Woodley and Earley Lions please visit www.lionsofwoodleyandearley.org.uk
Maiden Erlegh School Careers Fair
Each year we attend the Maiden Erlegh School Careers Fair. This is one of our major recruiting events, as within a few hours we are seen by hundreds of teenagers of recruitment age. This not only helps us in recruiting new members, but also in getting the Air Training Corps known by hundreds of teenagers and parents. We also help the RAF maintain a ‘Blue Footprint’ at this event as cuts are made to the Forces.
Model Railway Show in Reading
This year we helped to steward at the Model Railway Show held annually at Rivermead Leisure Centre. The event itself involves around 20 model railway layouts, over 75 traders and two dozen societies and demonstrations. The event draws around a thousand visitors each year. For more details of next years event please visit www.alsrm.org.uk
We would like to thank Big Yellow Storage for their support.
If you have an event you would like help with in some way, or you think your event would be perfect for a recruitment stand, please contact the Squadron Warrant Officer.
