On a cold Sunday 5th February 2012, the cadets and staff of 1224 (Wharfedale) Squadron travelled to York to take part in the annual Central & East Yorkshire Wing ATC Sunday service and parade - though due to the snow no parade actually took place.
The service took place inside York Minster and prior to this the Squadron band played outside the minster before the general public.
During the service the Squadrons Banner was paraded by Cpl Karl Verspyck. Also during the ceremony Cadet Warrant Officer Sam White spoke of the bands musical achievements at the National Band Competition.
After the service Group Captain Middleton, Regional Commandant of North Region personally thanked the band for their performance and even gave CWO White 10/10 for his speech.
