Newark Sea Cadet volunteers needed — can you help?
Newark Sea Cadets are looking for new volunteers who are happy to roll up their sleeves, get involved and make a positive difference to the lives of young people in the area.
The unit has lots of adult roles to match skills and offers training to help recruits gain more.
Make more of free time in the evening by showing cadets how to sail, powerboat, kayak or windsurf.
Volunteers are also needed to teach first aid, football, mountain biking, navigation and drill.
SLt (SCC) Simon Cullen RNR, the unit’s commanding officer, said: “We welcome all adults living in the area to pop in to the unit when we are open to meet other volunteers and cadets, have a tour of the unit, and have a chat about any roles that suit you.
“Don’t be put off if you haven’t got any relevant qualifications, all you need is basic knowledge and lots of enthusiasm.
“We need your help to keep inspiring young people through nautical adventure and to keep giving them the best possible head start in life.”
New volunteers will receive an induction and will be given training and support to make them feel comfortable in their role.
Newark Sea Cadets opened in 1987 and has supported thousands of young people in Newark to learn nautical skills.
The unit is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6.45pm to 9pm, and meets at their unit headquarters on Sherwood Avenue for anyone interested.
