New Stevenston father and son David and Aidan Crichton have won the Wing Media award for the West of Scotland as part of 449 Lanark Squadron air cadet squadron media team.

The team have been working all year compilling stories for newspapers, newsletters, Facebook pages, public events and sporting events as well as being the process of constructing a web page.

Brannock High pupil Aidan has appeared in the Times & Speaker on several occasions over the past few months, winning medals in both football and athletics and going on to represent Scotland.

David said: “This has been a terrific effort from all the cadets in the team, but without the hard work and effort of all the cadets in the squadron attending events and their sporting achievements we would not have won this trophy.”

The squadron wish to thank all the newspapers who publicised their activities and raised the organisation’s profile.

449 are now amongst the finalists in the national Air Cadet Organisation Media and Communications Awards.
