ARMY cadets and a TA troop in Sheffield are on the move...

The cadet detachment based at Somme Barracks, on West Street, is being redeployed to Endcliffe Hall, Ranmoor.

Army Cadet Force commanders say the change is happening because Somme Barracks’ city centre location had been putting off parents so there were fewer cadets attending than other detachments.

Meanwhile, the Territorial Army unit from Fourth Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment will move from Endcliffe Hall to Somme Barracks, in the cadets’ place.

Lt Col Jeremy Bleasdale, deputy chief executive of the regional Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, said: “The change is a simple administrative move.”
