Bridlington was given the honour of hosting the Central and East Yorkshire wing of the Air Training Corps’ parade.

Around 350 cadets gathered from as far afield as Stockton-on-Tees and Brough for an event which is only staged on this scale every five years.

Warrant officer Bob Hill, from 252 squadron in Bridlington, said: “It was an honour for the Bridlington squadron, it was a bit of kudos for us.” A service was held at St John’s Burlington Methodist Church, led by squadron padre the Rev Matthew Pollard and wing padre the Rev Andy Simpson, before a march through town to the Spa.
