CAISTOR army cadet Martha Holt has jumped to success... even though she hasn’t been a cadet for very long.

After achieving outstanding success in the Regional Athletic Final in Boston, Martha went on to represent her region at the National Finals in Grantham.

Martha was selected for the 800m but, at the last minute, was asked to step in to compete in the high jump – which she won, securing her place in the regional team.

Athletics is just one of the many activities on offer to members of the army cadets and Martha is also looking forward to taking part in the football competition later in the year.
