A ROYAL naval parade by the Henley sea cadets will be held at the TS Guardian
A ROYAL naval parade by the Henley sea cadets will be held at the TS Guardian unit in Wargrave Road next Friday evening.
This is a biannual event and the most important occasion in the unit’s calendar when a Royal Navy officer visits the unit to see that all is shipshape.
The cadets parade in “blues”, their best uniform, and then execute various displays and exercises in front of local dignitaries, the unit’s vice-presidents, parents and friends. Those attending will include the Mayor Julian Brookes, John Grout, president of Henley Rotary Club, Elizabeth Hodgkin, a trustee of the Thamesfield Youth Association, Joy Arnott, president of Henley Bridge Rotary Club, Tony Horsfall, social secretary, Phyllis Court Club, Ian Smith, chairman, Phyllis Court Singers, and Major Richard Davis (retired).
The unit has accomplished a great deal in the last 12 months and we are keen to demonstrate these improvements to our friends.
We now have more than 30 cadets and are an approved Royal Yachting Association training establishment. We regularly run powerboat training courses for the benefit of our own cadets as well as those from other units in the area and outside organisations.
The unit and our superb riverside facilities are now being utilised throughout the year.
