The first 'Lendrim Day' was held on 14 February 2014 at Claro Barracks, Ripon. Despite the stormy weather it was a great success, all the participants in the six events worked very hard and gave good spectator value, which was enjoyed by all. The Shiny 7 guests are most grateful for the warm reception received and the opportunity to reunite with the Squadron again. Many thanks to the O.C, the SSM, and all the Squadron for making this a most enjoyable and memorable day.
