Just had confirmed an exciting 2 day residential which will see YJA establish a media team at a youth event being staged at RAF College Cranwell.

On 23/24 April, the entire team of our 12 journalists from Year 7 at QEGS, Alford will be based at the famous air base to cover the Uniformed Public Services (UPS) Competition.

120 youngsters from 6 local colleges will be competing in drill, CSI tasks, first aid, shooting, orienteering and loads more activities. Our YJA team will be capturing all the action, on film, radio and, of course, will be publishing great articles.

Along with the competitors, YJA will be under canvas for a night too. Me? Oh I’ll be in the comfort of the very cosy officers’ quarters.
