The local member for Swan Hills, the Honourable Frank Alban, recently had some good news for 7WG:
On Friday 23 May I headed up to RAAF Base Pearce in Bullsbrook to present the 7 Wing Australian Air Force Cadets with a Lotterywest grant of $52,584.00, in the presence of 701 Squadron, Squadron Leader Damian Lambert (pictured left) and Flight Lieutenant Wendy Anderson. 7 Wing has some 800 cadets and 104 Officers and Airmen. Speaking with some of the members of 701 Squadron, I was impressed by their attitude, commitment and dedication to their role as Cadets. Speaking with both Squadron Leader Lambert and Flight Lieutenant Anderson, it was great to get an understanding of the skills these young people are developing that will no doubt assist them throughout their lives.
