Bournemouth army cadets fired up by merchant’s materials donation

A Bournemouth builders’ merchant has proved right on target for young army cadets in the region after donating materials to help build a new outdoor firing range.

Leading the charge to assist is Gibbs & Dandy Bournemouth’s counter sales staff member Albert Critchley, who is also an instructor and sergeant at the Rossmoor army cadets detachment in Poole.


With Critchley’s assistance, the Bournemouth branch has donated a range of materials to help the cadets build the outdoor firing range which will allow for essential firing training to be carried out in a safe environment.


Critchley said: “I joined the army cadets in my younger years, progressing into the army when I left school, and was keen to give something back to the organisation that inspired me all those years ago.


“The army encourages its cadets them to aim high and pursue their goals no matter what they aim to do in later life, and as a result they become more independent and confident for what they do.


“As a branch, Gibbs and Dandy Bournemouth is proud to support the development of the Rossmoor army cadets and looks forward to seeing them further excel with their training.”
