Chairman Rod Doyle and Commanding Officer PO Samatha Haywood cut the 75th Anniversary cake.

Sea Cadet Unit in Brentwood, Essex. During this time we have helped a dozen young people with life enhancing experiences at sea, all of whom say that they have benefited in building their confidence and personal skills at the same time as having a jolly good time.

Recently the new Executive Officer of the Unit, PO Samantha Haywood, accompanied a group of Cadets on the T.S.Jack Petchy on a voyage out of Gosport where they had the opportunity to further their sea craft skills. It was also a great platform to test the validity of Sam's (she has a degree in marine biology) suggestion to Sea Cadet Headquarters that offshore exercises should be used to help in monitoring the levels of sea pollution and marine population in and around UK waters.

More Awards

At the recent London Area Sea Cadet Conference held on Sunday 18th November the Unit collected three awards further showing the progress being made under their new leadership.

They are The Rosemary Dand Award for the Unit gaining the most catering and stewarding Class I & 2 qualifications.

The Peter Board Memorial Trophy for the greatest commitment to inshore activity.

The Unit Co-Operation Award for the unit doing the most to assist and support others.

These awards were on display at the annual prize giving of the Unit held on 10th January in Brentwood, the evening also coincided with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Brentwood Sea Cadets. The Master Bowyer, Ian spring, accompanied by John Ellery, Richard Martin and Michael Wren were guests that evening where our cheque for £1500 was presented to the Chairman, Rob Doyle who thanked the Bowyers' for their continued support. The Master then addressed the Sea Cadets wishing continued success in the coming year. As a point of interest the group are increasing in numbers with five new recruits waiting in the wings to join at any time now.
