As part of the Life in the UK project, BGNA held an interaction day on 11th October 2018 with the Flight Lieutenant (Retd.) Anthony Walton RAFVR(T) who delivered a beneficial talk about the profile of the locally based 78 (Wembley) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC).
Mr Walton is a familiar face for the local communities in Brent. He has been actively volunteering for the local British Legion branch and the Air Cadet Force for a long time. He has undertaken a great responsibility in making the public more aware of the significant work that these organisations do.
The talk was given from his personal capacity. With the help of a Nepalese Interpreter Ms Binita Rai Lee, Mr Walton talked about the aim of the unit, the activities it runs and how someone can join the unit as a volunteer.
BGNA is immensely grateful to Mr Walton and Ms Rai Lee for helping the Gurkha veterans in making them understand about the work of the local cadet unit. The local cadet unit has recently seen the rise in young individuals from the Gurkha background joining the cadet unit.
As part of the project, BGNA will soon invite other notable personalities who have contributed to community development in Brent.
