From the Air Cadet Facebook page;

The Air Cadet Glider Recovery Programme hit its latest milestone by returning Grob Vigilants to 645 Volunteer Gliding Squadron.
The team at 645VGS will now focus on getting all the instructors current again and ensuring the unit is operating to a required standard under the supervision and guidance of 2FTS.
Once this is complete 645 VGS will be handed over to its own executive team ready to fly cadets again in the near future where they are looking forward to welcoming cadets.

With one comment made;

I'm confused...the last I'd heard all Vigilant motor gliders (except the handful that had already been returned) were being scrapped, and motor gliders altogether were on the way out. Has something changed?

Somebody who is a bit more IT savvy might be able to post the whole link.
