FROM SOURCE TO SEA: CADETS PART OF  200 MILE JOURNEY

11/09/14

On Monday 8 September, Sea Cadets from Kingston and Southwark helped to celebrate the country's most iconic river, by taking part in the Source to Sea River Relay.

Cadets had the honour of marching the bottle through the Houses of Parliament, where Petty Officer Cadet Wood handed the bottle over to Mr Speaker. Mr Speaker was delighted to accept the bottle into the Houses of Parliament and congratulated the cadets for their efforts.

The Source to Sea River Relay is part of the Totally Thames celebration of London's iconic river. Journeying over 200 miles in 45 days, the bottle will pass through communities of walkers, swimmers, rowers, sailors, boat owners and many more individuals passionate about the river.
