Squadron Leader Lisa Railton has been appointed to the post of Regional Shooting Officer for the Wales & West (W&W) Region.
Lisa’s promotion follows four years as Wing Shooting Officer for No 1 Welsh Wing, Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC), during which time the Wing’s shooting team dominated National Target Shooting Competitions.
Her new duties include the coordination of all shooting requirements, facilitation of competitions and course allocations throughout the six Wings of W&W Region.
The mum-of-three from the Cardiff area joined the RAFAC in 2008, with shooting always having been a passion.
She said, “It has been a pleasure serving as the Wing Shooting Officer for No1 Welsh Wing over the past 4 years, with many successes along the way, thanks to the dedication and commitment of the staff and Cadets of the Wing Shooting Team. My new position of Regional Shooting Officer will afford the continued support and development of shooting for all Wings in the Wales & West (W&W) Region.”
The dental care professional educator, who has attended camps all over the UK and abroad including Cyprus and Canada said the best thing about being an adult volunteer was the Cadets.
“I am very proud of being part of something which fosters the RAF principles to aid in the development of future leaders, be that military or civilian. The best thing are the Cadets and having the privilege of witnessing them grow into confident and successful young adults with a true sense of self and citizenship.
“I am constantly in awe of the continued enthusiasm, capabilities and achievements of these amazing young people. Being a part of this incredible organisation is my driving force for continued development and improvements to activities in order to offer the best Cadet experience.”
