Volunteer police cadets from Northamptonshire Police represented the force in London during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations over the weekend.
A group of nine cadets aged between 16 and 19 years were invited by the Metropolitan Police to attend the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on Sunday (June 3). The group joined other cadet groups from across the country to watch the flotilla from Westminster Bridge.
A second group of three cadets were invited by Youth United to represent Northamptonshire Police alongside other voluntary youth groups at the Diamond Jubilee Concert on Monday (June 4).
The lucky cadets had prime position at the Queen Victoria Memorial to watch the event against the spectacular backdrop of Buckingham Palace.
Yvonne Mason, volunteer police cadet co-ordinator, who accompanied the cadets to London, said: “It was a fantastic weekend and such an honour for the cadets to represent the force at the Jubilee celebrations. The concert was absolutely magical and will be something the cadets will remember for years to come.”
