Chiswick Sea Cadets will be reopening a junior section in the unit catering to 10-12 year olds.

Juniors Sea Cadets will be able to do most of what our seniors cadets get up to; with access to boating, camping and other activities. The only difference, is more having more FUN!

Chiswick unit on Remembrance parade

A wonderful turnout for this years parades. We attended our Turnham Green parade alongside our local Chiswick RBL and we have had lots of wonderful photos of the day, which you can view here.

We also assisted our unit Chaplain at Holy Innocents in Hammersmith remembering those from the original T.S. Stork (from which we take our name) who fought and died in World War 1.

Well done to all that took part.

The Annual General Meeting was held earlier than normal this year.

This is an evening for parents and supporters to attend and hear about what the unit has achieved over the year. We also have our Unit Management Committee members re-stand for their positions and for any additional people to put themselves forward.

2016 - Summer holiday trip on the John Jerwood

2016 - Summer holiday trip on the John Jerwood

After a year spent fundraising Chiswick unit took 11 cadets (plus a lovely lad from Colchester unit) all the way to Belgium to go on a weeks trip on the T.S. John Jerwood.

For many cadets this was their first time actually out at sea but many of them greatly enjoyed the challenges. They had to learn many aspects of life at sea included seamanship, engineering, how to live in close quarters with each other and had daily tasks like galley duty, washing up and making sure they had made their bed!

The trip was not without its ups and downs, mainly the crossing back from France which had many of the crew feeling a bit green, but we soon arrived back to the UK in Ramsgate.

The cadets were a pleasure to be with for the duration of the trip and everyone came home with their offshore seaman level 1. Even more impressive was that two came home with their level 2!

Hopefully this trip has sparked the love for being at sea and we already know a few cadets are planning another trip already.

Well done all
