Cadets met many dignitaries and VIP's including Consulates from France and Japan, 30 Mayors from across the Country, and the Lord Lieutenant of County Durham.

The C.O remarked "The Guard of 14 cadets were absolutely fantastic and I am very proud of you all! As a thank you the McDonalds was on the Mayor tonight and we are very grateful. BZ!"

The Staff and Cadets also had the honour of meeting the Mayor of Durhams Bodyguards

The bodyguard is the oldest of its kind outside London, dating from the 13th Century.

Its members originally defended the Durham wardens, who acted as the city’s governors, while the Prince Bishops also called on the bodyguard to defend Durham against marauders.

Following the appointment of Durham’s first mayor in 1602, the bodyguard’s role became collecting taxes at the city gates.
