East Herts VPC had quite a week, made up of 2 units, Hertford & Ware established in June 2015 and Bishop's Stortford established Sept 2018. They were set up and are still run by the same team, jointly the units comprise of 100 Cadets.

They recently won the 2019 High Sheriff's association National crimebeat award and came second in the adult led category for their social action project ACHIEVE CARE. Both awards were given for their outstanding contribution to helping reduce crime and creating a safer community!!

The project uses cadets therapy dogs and technology to visit elderly residents who are socially isolated or suffering early stages of dementia. 

This is the teams second win in Herfordshire in 3 years. They also came runners at the at the National cadet competition over the last 2 years running. Certainly a team to look out for, however to maintain the success and to ensure they continue their great work they are after more leaders so why not get involved!!!
