BEAMING air cadets scooped four national awards at the annual meeting of the Girls Venture Corps.

Phoebe Barrie, aged 15, won the Doreen Ballard Trophy for the highest score in an aviation theory exam for air ability.

The other trophies were awarded to the whole Rotherham Girls Venture Corps.

The haul included the Cecillia Jenkins Trophy for the best all round unit, won for the second year running.

The girls were also runners-up in the Lady Leverhulme Cup, for service to the community, and the Australia Cup for the unit with the most aviation awards.

Core director Brenda Layne said the team had an enthusiastic leader who involved the girls in more activities than any other group.

Rotherham group commandant Nicola Jones said: “I am always proud of what we achieve as a unit. This is the icing on the cake.”
