During lockdown, many units and families have found it a very difficult time. In particular around Hertfordshire and our surrounding areas many of our sea cadet volunteers are frontline workers and therefore have not been in a position to be able to teach on a regular basis. However, St Albans unit have been in a position where we could offer regular virtual teaching sessions at least twice a week over Zoom. These sessions were also offerred to other units as well as allowing our cadets a chance to communicate and make friends with other unit cadets. I'm pleased to say that from St Albans unit point of view it was a great success with plenty of promotions and games around... we even had a Pirates of the Carribean night where we learnt the proper technique of how to anchor a ship or boat!
I'm pleased to say that from April till August, between the cadets they attended 42 online courses that were being run online across the UK. We also had at minimum of 7 cadets enrolled with at least 7 cadets being promoted. Thats quite an achievement in such circumstances! BZ to everyone!
