We're back in our unit building!

After 15 long months of being unable to use our building following the floods in December 2015 we are now back!

Whilst we have been out of the building we've taken the opportunity to improve the facilities (new double glazed windows and Galley facilities) this was only available due to the generosity of other Sea Cadet supporters, grants from HQ and other supporting organisations & companies. 

Whilst there's still a lot of work to do we're all looking forward to the official reopening this Friday 31st MarcNew Galley

 

Repair work has started!!!

At long last work has begun to repair the unit building following the boxing day floods. We hope to make improvements to the building as part of the repair works. Still a long way to go but at least we're on the right track now!

Unit Flood - Temporary New Meeting Place

Unit Flood

Due to the Flooding experienced along the river Calder over the Christmas period we are currently unable to use our unit building. We have managed to secure an alternative place to meet temporarily until we are able to return.

We will be using the facilities at Standbridge Lane Community Centre for the next few weeks, if you are able to go directly there that would be greatly appreciated however if you are unable, to we will be able to transport cadets from the unit on Thornes Lane to the SLCC using the minibus.

Any queries please email the unit email address.
