On Thursday 2nd May, our parade night became a fun night to allow the outgoing Chairperson (Nic) and Secretary (Mary) to spend time with Cadets and Parents to give them a chance to say Thank you and Goodbye.
Both Mary and myself enjoyed ourselves immensely, dancing and laughing the night away, with a few tears thrown in for good measure!
A huge thank you to all of Sandwell Sea Cadets, past and present, we have made some amazing memories and some very dear friends over the years and we will miss you all dearly.
What does the future hold for Mary and Nic? - Mary is leaving the Sea Cadet Corps to spend more time with her family and take a well deserved relaxing holiday or two. Nic, on the other hand, has been persuaded to move to district to help with the admin for the competitions.
Traning Ship Albion it has been an honour to serve you.
Nic & Mary
