TS Jervis Bay is officially open and Reading Sea Cadets are delighted to be back in their unit at long last.
Thank you to HM Lord-Lieutenant of the Royal County of Berkshire Mr James Puxley for conducting the formal re-commissioning and to The Mayor of Reading Cllr Debs Edwards and Reading West MP Alok Sharma for inspecting the unit and to Area Officer Commander Trevor Price for prize-giving.
A very big thank you also to all staff, members of the Unit Management Team, supporters, parents, and last but not least, our fabulous cadets for making it such a terrific evening.
TS Jervis Bay training facility was closed in May 2014 due to unsafe roof conditions and for the next four years we used temporary accommodation in the gym at Brock Barracks.
After obtaining approval to fix the roof via our landlord, we started fundraising - raising £86,000 in a year! The roof was duly fixed and we moved back into TS Jervis Bay on 1 September 2018.
