November was a busy month

 

In January the Senior Girls and the U12’s won the District and Area Five-a-side Football with the Senior Girls going onto the National Event where they came a creditable Second (U12’s do not have a National event in football)

In May came the Athletics which is only a District Event. Wandsworth were awarded 1st place overall with the Girls coming 1st and the boys 2nd.   

 In June we had the Rowing Regatta held at Royal Victoria Docks, London. Senior and Juniors Boys won District with both crews going onto Area where the Seniors Boys won and the Juniors came 2nd. Senior Boys now practicing for the National Event in September.

In September the Open Boys Crew went to Nationals at Royal Victoria Docks  and came an incredible second with some very close races. BZ

 November was a busy month with the !st Lieutenant and CPO Holland and six cadets taking part in the Lord Mayor's Parade. Sadly the weather wasn't very good but the cadets did us proud. The Commanding Officer did a fine job and taking and collecting everyone which was especially helpful with the bad weather.

The following day was Remembrance Sunday and with the 1st Lieutenant's good work with the uniforms, they were dry from the Lord Mayor's Parade and Wandsworth Unit marched with the Royal Legion and Royal Marines etc down Putney High Street to the Remembrance service in St. Mary's Church. Many people line the streets and we had a good turn out.

The following Saturday we had our Jumble Sale with lots of help from Committe, Parents, Staff and Cadets and made a marvellous £750.

On the Sunday we had the Cross Country and Tug of War Competition at Edgware Unit. Good turn out from the cadets and we managed Two Individual Medals for Forence Fowkes 1st and Josh Harvey 2nd. Girls came 2nd out of seven units, boys came 3rd out of ten units and the Under 12's came 2nd out of nine units. A very long day and long weekend but the cadets did themselves and the Unit Proud.

After some tough racing at District we sent 2 crews to the area competition.  The rain held off and the wind wasn't too strong.  At the end of the day our boys came a credible 2nd in the open competion and our junior boys won theirs.  Congratualtions to all crews that participated!  ...And good luck to the junior boys who will be off to the National Finals in September.

22nd July 2012 - Mrs Muriel Huxley MBE

It is with great sadness that we record the death of our Chairman - Mrs Muriel Huxley. Muriel first became involved with the Sea Cadets with Chelsea Unit in 1968. Was a strong supporter of the merger of Chelsea Unit with Putney Unit to form 'her' Unit. She also worked hard with the forming of a new unit at Chiswick to give those who lived just outside our catchment area an opportunity to become Sea Cadets.

She worked tirelessly with fund raising and building relationships with those organisations that could and were willing to support what she called 'her Cadets'. And there was none prouder when they appeared in public in full naval uniform, be it at a national event, such as the annual Trafalgar Day parade, supporting the Dunkirk Little Ships on their annual trip up river or at our local RBL Remembrance Sunday parade. For her work with Sea Cadets she was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire. The youth of Wandsworth, Chelsea and Fulham will be a poorer place without her.

Her funeral will take pace at Putney Vale on Tuesday 26 June at 1440. No flowers has been requested. Donations should be made to her favourite charity - her Unit - Wandsworth, Chelsea and Fulham Sea Cadets.
