Well I can't contain my excitement anymore so I am going to tell you that Able Cadet Splicer is attending HMS Raliegh as a solo piper representing Croydon at an Area Comp.
This has all been achieved by coming first at both District and Area Comps with a lot of hard work and dedication and all the more special as AC Spicer is mainly self taught with a little instruction so wishing her all the the best for the up and coming comp and no matter what happens AC Spicer will always be a winner for team Croydon so fingers crossed.
There's more !!!! Able Cadet Spicer is also competing in the team piping event at HMS Raliegh with 2 cadets from Beckenham so I am wishing the team all the best and it just goes to show that units are also stronger together and also shows what can be achieved when units work together for the greater good.
Even more I hear you say again this is for inter unit relations as Ordinary Cadet Monique Nelson is teaming up with Sutton unit going to HMS Raliegh to enter the Area comp as a unarmed drill team and I know that a lot of blood sweat and tears and hard work has gone into shaping what is hopefully a winning team so my congratulations goes out to Sutton unit and all their hard work.
I must all so to take a moment to mention Ordinary Cadet Joshua Barriteau-Haynes from Croydon who has made the reserve list for the unarmed drill team which takes a lot as cadets on the reserve list work just as hard with lots of blood sweat and tears with the possibility of not taking part and that takes a very special person so my thanks and respect goes out to him.
