Warsash Sea Cadets were pleased to welcome Suella Braverman at their headquarters, to give her an insight into the practices of their organisation. Suella began her visit by sitting in on one of the Sea Cadets’ shore-based training sessions. This included a lesson on the importance of seamanship and care of uniform.
The Warsash Sea Cadets is a brilliant volunteer-led organisation that aims to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be, in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline and honesty are taught to the cadets.
As well as learning key life skills and practical skills, the cadets also have a great deal of fun on the water – Suella was delighted to be asked to take part in this. After the shore-based training session, the Sea Cadets took Suella out for a spin in one of their power boats and showed her their extensive knowledge of navigating the waters.
Commenting, Suella said:
“My thanks to all those who volunteer their time to help educate the cadets and for providing this wonderful opportunity for children and teenagers across Fareham. The Warsash Sea Cadets are taught incredibly important life skills that they’ll carry with them their whole lives. I was also highly impressed by their nautical expertise – thanks for taking me out on the water!”
