SEA CADETS ATTEND ROYAL BURIAL

SEA CADETS ATTEND ROYAL BURIAL

30/03/2015

On Thursday 26 March, seven Sea Cadets from Northants & Leicester District took part in King Richard III second burial – one that was more fit for a king, and watched by thousands of people around the world. The service was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and attended by many important people, including Sophie The Countess of Wessex, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and families whose ancestors were involved in the War of the Roses.

One of the lucky cadets selected to attend was POC Kieran. He told us what it was like to take part: “We led a procession that marched through the streets into Leicester Cathedral. I was honoured to receive an invitation in my final year of being a Sea Cadet – as someone who appreciates the importance of ceremonial occasions, this was close to my heart."

Sea Cadets across London are thrilled to receive four new RS Tera sailing dinghies, delivered to their Welsh Harp boating station in North London on Monday 23 March, thanks to a hefty contribution from Eric Twiname Trust!

Harrow and Richmond Sea Cadets units applied to Eric Twiname Trust to purchase the sailing dinghies, and were successful in just under half of the funding to purchase four RS Tera sailing dinghies. The new dinghies, which all Sea Cadets across London will benefit from, will be put through their paces during the Easter holidays by juniors, aged 10-12, for beginner courses and the boating station is organising a friendly race against other youth sailing clubs.

ROLLS-ROYCE LOOK TO DESIGN WORKSHOP FOR CADETS

23/03/2015

A group of Rolls-Royce graduates are looking to design, develop and deliver an education workshop for Sea Cadets to encourage them to think about an engineering career.  

Many cadets gain engineering qualifications at their unit and they have the nautical knowledge that would be beneficial to a career in marine engineering.  Although these workshops are available to all cadets, research conducted by the charity WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) states that at present, women only make up 5% of the engineering profession.
