If you love getting out on the water and are aged between 10 and 18, join Thornbury Sea Cadets for the time of your life.
Race sailing dinghies on UK lakes, powerboat down rivers, go offshore, achieve a BTEC or undertake your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – whatever you choose, there is a world of exciting challenges at Thornbury Sea Cadets.
SLt (SCC) Rob Umfreville RNR, the Commanding Officer at the unit, said: “We welcome all young people to pop by the unit when we’re open and get stuck into some of the exciting activities like sailing, kayaking and powerboating that we offer.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to get to know other young people in the area and you will make some great friends, learn new skills that will give you a great head start in life and will really boost your confidence.”
Thornbury Unit (also known as TS Battleaxe), which is part of national charity Sea Cadets, gives young people a new perspective. We broaden horizons and create possibilities. Working across the UK with 14,000 young people between 10 and 18, we help them see the world with confidence, gained through the challenge of nautical adventure and a Royal Navy ethos. Our aim is to help more young people to see the future that they want – and make that future happen.
The unit is open Mondays and Thursdays from 1845 until 2100, and meets at the Cadet Centre behind Castle School on Gloucester Road in Thornbury. Visit: www.sea-cadets.org/Thornbury or www.facebook.com/ThornburySeaCadets/ to find out how you can join our team.
