Former Cadet Springs into Action

Former Avonmouth Cadet Sam Booker recently came to the aid of a work colleague who had cut themself and fainted at the site of the blood.

Sam used the valuable First Aid skills he had learnt as a Sea Cadet to help his colleague. Sam said, "being a Sea Cadet has given me the knowledge and confidence to use the First Aid skills I was taught. I am very grateful that I was able to use those skills to help my colleague during this minor incident".

It is always great to see vital skills, such as First Aid, being used in action to great effect. It is one of the many qualifications and life skills that can be gained through being a Sea Cadet or Volunteer.

New volunteers are always welcome at the unit. We have a range of roles available and offer many opportunities for volunteers to gain skills and qualifications. For more information please complete the online form on the get in touch page.

Ex-Cadet back from the Royal Navy

Lt Simon Marr RN has returned to Avonmouth Sea Cadets as staff after 10 years. Since leaving the unit in 2010, Simon has joined the Royal Navy as a Pilot and Air Engineer Officer. We hope having him back onboard means we can use his STEM and naval experiences to good use with the cadets. “Sea Cadets introduced me mountaineering, water sports and laid the foundations of the Naval Officer I am today. I’m honoured to have the opportunity to give something back to the Unit”, he said. He has been working with the Junior Cadets initially and will soon be assisting with the Senior Cadets.

Watertight and Shipshape

Watertight and Shipshape

We are now the proud owners of a very watertight new flat roof! A very big thank you to County Flat Roofing (UK) Ltd for such a great job and all round great service.

Obviously we would never have been able to complete this essential maintenance project without obtaining grants. This project was funded through Covid Grants and the Annual Premises Fund from MS-SC and will see the building weathertight for many years to come enabling us to provide the best possible cadet experience we can offer.
