The Cromer Army Cadet Force (ACF) held an open day to celebrate the official reopening of the detachment at Cromer Academy on Saturday, April 27.

And commander Lt Gina Webster said the day offered cadets “fantastic networking opportunities”.

She said: “We got a lot of support and interest.

“We've got a sign up day on Tuesday, which is our usual parade night and we'll be able to answer any questions.”

The ACF wing had not been operating for seven months due to a lack of staffing.

But Lt Webster said: “We've got a level of interest and we can't afford to sell it short.

“The mayor is keen for us to get involved in community work and Hilary Cox, the new chairman of the Royal British Legion in Cromer, wants us to be involved at Halsey House.”

She added: “We're hoping for a bright future in Cromer.”
