Two Ammanford Police Cadets have excelled in a national police competition.

VPC Ffion Jenkins and VPC Mimi Woods of the Carmarthenshire Cadets received individual awards from the Chief Constable of British Transport Police Paul Crowther for their leadership, professionalism and enthusiasm. 

The pair took part in the National Volunteer Police Cadet Competition ‘CADETS UNITED’, hosted by last year’s winners British Transport Police at RAF Cosford, England. 

On the weekend, in excess of 250 cadets took part in the activities.

The competition ran over three days, with various events including a military challenge, a ‘who dunnit?’, and the dreaded ‘bleep test’. 

The event finished with a formal parade and presentation for the winners. 

This was when Ffion and Mimi recieved awards for excelling throughout. 
Carmarthenshire cadets, who have been selected from Amman Valley School, provided 12 members to the team.

They chose their mascot as the Twrch Trwyth which was kindly donated by a local business Try Angles.

PC Kerry Scoberg said: “This was a fantastic event, and I would like to express my gratitude to British Transport Police for the invite and to RAF COSFORD for their warm welcome. 

“It was an immensely proud moment for me and the other leaders of the Ammanford based cadets to see them present themselves so professionally throughout the competition. 

“To have not just one, but two cadets from Ammanford formally recognised for their commitment was the icing on the cake.”
