As part of our Virtual Unit, our Junior Sea Cadets have created lots of very good Rainbow of Hopes, with a Sea Cadet twist. As a result, we wanted to upgrade our own logo to send cheer and support to all the Key Workers in the UK.
Thank you to all our Adult Volunteers (and any Senior Cadets who have jobs) that are key workers and are still supporting the nation.
Happy 18th Birthday to Petty Officer Cadet Jago Clarke, and his twin brother (and former Royal Marines Cadet), Finlay Clarke.
Jago has had an eventful time as a Cadet and gone from Junior Sea Cadet all the way to Petty Officer Cadet.
Jago has been a leader, a committed cadet and a great example to those below him, achieving many professional qualifications such as being an RYA Powerboat Instructor and is currently working towards becoming an RYA Start Windsurfing Instructor.
We are delighted to welcome him back to being staff and wish him all the best in moving forward.
We also want to wish his twin, Finlay a very happy 18th birthday today too!
A quick update to say, despite the Unit being closed that we are still very much open for business on a Virtual Unit. We are primarily using Google Classroom and have over 50 Cadets engaging on the platform.
If you haven't received the email from our Commanding Officer, or you are interested in joining but can't because we aren't open, then please get in touch by emailing - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and stay safe!
