RAF Halton update – January 2022

Tree Planting For the Queens Jubilee At the Spring Nursery RAF Halton.

Spring Nursery, RAF Halton, takes part in The Queen’s Green Canopy
Nursery Manager Madieke says:
“On Thursday 18 November our nursery took part in the The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC), which is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and invites people from across the United Kingdom to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.’”

“We invited the RAF Halton Station Commander, Group Captain Dan Startup, to our nursery to help the children plant this special tree and we have also marked our tree on the map on the website.”

Station Commander’s Coin
Congratulations to Corporal (Cpl) Taylor who was the recipient of a prestigious Station Commander’s Coin in December.

Taking on the position of Chair of the Junior Ranks Council 6 months ago, Cpl Taylor has been a breath of fresh air; enthusiastic, articulate and determined to do good. One of the Station Commander’s top priorities for 2021 was to enhance the communications across the Station – particularly for the Junior Ranks – and Cpl Taylor has led the way by creating an MS Teams forum to enable this. It has proved beneficial for not just the Junior Ranks Council but also the Junior Ranks Welfare Committee. At meetings with the Station Commander and Station Warrant Officer she has excelled as Chair, capably providing clear and concise direction and updates.

A truly well-deserved award – well done!
