There has been a lot going on at the Unit over the last couple of months.
Our Commanding Officer, Lt(SCC) B Silver RNR, stepped down after 25 years at the Unit to become Central District's Training Officer. S/Lt(SCC) N Gilks RNR has taken Command. The rest of the adult volunteers have remained the same.
Another Burgee was achieved this year which is amazing! Our second one ever, two in two years!! BZ to our cadets and adult volunteers who work tirelessly to make our Unit a great one.
Our affiliation with HMS Hurworth continues to grow. We have good contact with them and they are planning to spend time with us on Chichester Canal in the summer months and to join us for our sports evenings.
Our community involvement remains good with the Tri Service Band performing at events such as the Remembrance Parade and in June, the Help4Heroes Charity Walk along the South Coast from Southampton to Brighton. We are also providing the walkers with food and accommodation for when they pass through Chichester. We will also be involved in the Selsey D Day Parade on Sunday 1 June.
The boating season has started so we are back on Chichester Canal paddling which the cadets and adult volunteers very much enjoy! We always have good fun, look out for us and say hello!
