The heart of England may be an unlikely place to find maritime cadets but a unit has been started at the Community Centre. The Ranger Cadets meet each Wednesday 6.30 -8.30 pm with two sections, juniors 7 -12 years and senior cadets 13-17 years
The group is looked after by volunteers and activities include adventure training, camping, sailing, navigation, drumming, sports and games – all with a naval flavour. It is easy to join too, just come along any Wednesday evening and get involved. Cadets are loaned a naval type uniform against a deposit of £20.00 and ‘subs are £3.00 each week.
Regular weekend events are also organised all at very reasonable cost.
The unit meets again on Wednesday 28th November, Further details are available from John or Eileen Mander on 01933 412099 or 07932 311028 and the email address is Rangercadetsnorthants@gmail.com and the website is www.Rangercadetsuk.org
We still have vacancies for new cadets and adult volunteers. We need in particular someone to run our galley (canteen) which provides soft drinks, crisps and biscuits etc at Stand Easy (break time).
The Rangers is a not for profit organisation and part of the Maritime Cadet Association, a national naval organsation for young people and a registered charity. Their website address is www.Maritimecadets.co.uk
