Thorne Sea Cadets host Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant at unit inspection
Thorne Sea Cadets hosted a very special guest with the arrival of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for South Yorkshire, Mr Andrew Coombe, who joined a number of local dignitaries and VIPs for the unit’s bi-annual inspection.
The inspection night also welcomed parents and families to the unit who were able to see some of the activities the cadets participate in, which included canoeing, rowing, power-boating, seamanship and even making cocktails.
Commanding officer Dave Redmile said: “We’re delighted the evening went so well and it was a great privilege to welcome the new Lord-Lieutenant to the unit, which we believe was one of his first public duties as Lord-Lieutenant.
“All of us, sea cadets and staff, have worked hard to prepare for the evening and we’d also like to pass on our gratitude to all the parents of the sea cadets who behind the scenes also work hard transporting their son or daughter to the unit every week as well as supporting us at events regularly.”
Dave added: “We currently have places for more young people to join us. So if you’d like to find out more please contact me.”
The Sea Cadets is a charitable youth organisation for boys and girls aged 10-18 years old and offers young people opportunities for excitement, adventure and personal development as well as learning new skills and making new friends.
