Back to normal?

3 May 2021

South Liverpool Sea Cadets are open again, currently just of a Wednesday evening (7pm-9pm). Our activities will be outside for the moment, or in the large hall if the weather is inclement. We do have in place guidelines to ensure we adhere to government advice on preventing the spread of Covid-19.

In the background we're planning further activities for late spring and summer. Our committee is seeking funding for mountain bike and hill walking qualifications, we are conscious of the need to get the cadets out and about again after a difficuelt year. These qualifications are essential to allow us to get back into the countryside.

An update on our new premises, we've received planning permission for the refurbishment and are now looking to raise funds from a variety of sources. It's a big challenge to raise over £200k but we're a determined bunch and always look to do the best we can for our young people.

We're boating again

Our voluntary staff have been workring hard to get our cadets boating again as quickly as possible. Over the winter, while allowed, they have made ready the Wallasey boating station. We've moved our kayaks and canoes to the site and have recently enjoyed Saturday afternoon boating sessions with up to 8 cadets. We've attached a photo of our cadets enjoying themselves. There are more spaces available if more cadets wish to join us, watch out for Marc's notices for upcoming dates.

 

Light at the end of the tunnel

Light at the end of the tunnel

Project 'Light at the end of the tunnel' is up and running. We have been offered a 25yr lease on a great building in the Army Reserve centre in Aigburth, Liverpool. The success of this project will mean us moving out of our current Portacabin accommodation, they have served us well but are becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to maintain.

This move will come at a cost of approximately £200,000, it's a big total but we're confident we can achieve it. The unit committee is working to seek grant aid to help us achieve our target.

See the attached image for what we are looking to achieve.

With many thanks to the 'Duchy of Lancaster', South Liverpool Sead Cadets are proud to announce that we have a second safety boat. The Whaly 435 is virtually unsinkable and will provide not only for a safer boating environment but enable us to teach 'power boating' to our cadets.
