Palace date for Norfolk’s young St John Ambulance ambassadors

Five local St John Ambulance youth members have got a date at Buckingham Palace scheduled in their 2012 diaries.

The youngsters will meet members of the royal family after entering a competition to find ambassadors for both St John Badgers, aged five to ten, and Cadets, aged ten to 17.

There were 16 youngsters who took part in a two-day challenge for the Cadets and a single day for the Badgers, with both groups having uniform inspections, giving visual presentations, attending interviews and being monitored for their team work.

The Cadets also demonstrated foot drill and were assessed on their etiquette and behaviour during a three-course meal.

The Badger and Cadet of the year were then chosen as Hannah Todd from the Stoke Holy Cross division and Joshua Pilling from the Sprowston number two Badger sett.
