The Steyning air cadets’ home has had a floral makeover from a local garden centre.
The now-flourishing meeting place, used by 1140 Steyning Squadron Cadets, has a greener look thanks to the donations by Mayberry Garden Centre in Portslade.
The entrance to the squadron’s central meeting point is lined with raised beds planted by some of the cadets.
Flight Lieutenant Dave Emsley, who runs the cadet squadron, said: “We are grateful for the continued support we receive from Mayberry Garden Centre.”
This is just the start of a green-fingered journey for the cadets; they will be planting and learning about horticulture from volunteers and brushing up on their gardening knowledge.
Mayberry manager Darren Clift said: “We have worked with the cadets since 2011, and this donation will help continue our working relationship and also add something to the community.”
The cadets and the family-run business have an established relationship. Mayberry hosts a charity car wash, organised by the squadron, for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal every year.
