North Wales Army Cadets triumph in First Aid competitions

Cymraeg

Cadets from Clwyd & Gwynedd Army Cadet Force (ACF) have shone at this year’s Young Dragons First Aid Competitions, which are managed by St. John Ambulance Service.

 

Cadets Sadie Edwards from Bethesda and Leighton Williams from Holyhead won first place in the Under 15s category, and Cadets Nicholas Fiorita and Courtney Bargate from Llandudno took first place in the Under 18s category.

 

Sisters and Adult Instructors, Tabitha and Chloe Cook, took first place in the Young Adults category.

 

Awards and participation certificates were presented by Deputy Lord-Lieutenant of Clwyd Colonel John Williams DL and Lord-Lieutenant of Gwynedd Mr Edmund Bailey, along with High Sheriff of Clwyd Mrs C H G Howard and High Sheriff of Gwynedd Professor S Hope OBE.

 

Sergeant Major Instructor Louise Baker-Morris (Regional, Clwyd and Gwynedd ACF’s First Aid Officer), thanked the adult staff and teams for their work preparing for the competition, which also proved a very useful precursor to the upcoming regional Army Cadet competitions.

 

Major John Baxendale, the Commandant’s Young Dragons representative said: “It was good that teams from across the spectrum of uniformed groups participated. Thanks to the staff from St John for overseeing the various challenging tests.”

 

First Aid is just one of the transferable skills that Cadets can gain from being involved with the ACF in Wales. There are hundreds of opportunities to compete in activities that improve their personal skillset and equip them for adult life.

Cadetiaid Gogledd Cymru yn llwyddo mewn cystadlaethau Cymorth Cyntaf

Mae Cadetiaid o Lu Cadetiaid y Fyddin Clwyd a Gwynedd wedi gwneud yn arbennig o dda yng nghystadlaethau Cymorth Cyntaf y Dreigiau Ifanc eleni, sef cystadleuaeth a reolir gan Wasanaeth Ambiwlans Sant Ioan.

 

Enillodd y Cadetiaid Sadie Edwards o Fethesda a Leighton Williams o Ynys Môn wobr gyntaf yn y categori dan 15 oed, ac enillodd y Cadetiaid Nicholas Fiorita a Courtney Bargate o Landudno y wobr gyntaf yn y categori dan 18 oed.

 

Daeth Tabitha a Chloe Cook, hyfforddwyr oedolion a chwiorydd, yn gyntaf yn y categori Oedolion Ifanc.

 

Cyflwynwyd y gwobrau a’r tystysgrifau am gymryd rhan gan Is-Arglwydd Raglaw Clwyd, Cyrnol John Williams DL, ac Arglwydd-Raglaw Gwynedd Mr Edmund Bailey DL, yn ogystal ag Uwch-Siryf Clwyd Mrs C H G Howard ac Uwch Siryf Gwynedd, yr Athro S Hope OBE.

 

Diolchodd Uwch-gapten Hyfforddwr Louise Baker-Morris (y Swyddog Cymorth Cyntaf rhanbarthol, Clwyd a Gwynedd) i’r staff a’r timau am eu gwaith caled yn paratoi ar gyfer y gystadleuaeth, oedd yn ymarfer da ar gyfer y cystadlaethau Lluoedd Cadetiaid y Fyddin rhanbarthol sydd ar y gweill.

 

Dywedodd yr Uwch-gapten John Baxendale, cynrychiolydd Prif Swyddog Dreigiau Ifanc: “Roedd yn dda gweld timau o sawl sefydliad lifrai yn cymryd rhan. Diolch i staff Sant Ioan am oruchwylio’r asesiadau amryw a heriol.”

 

 

Mae Cymorth Cyntaf yn un o sawl sgil trosglwyddadwy y gall Cadetiaid eu cael trwy ymuno â Llu Cadetiaid y Fyddin yng Nghymru. Mae cannoedd o gyfleoedd i gystadlu mewn gweithgareddau sy’n gwella eu sgiliau personol ac yn eu paratoi am fywyd fel oedolion.
