    Story

    We are bringing The Sea Cadet Experience to Wells Next The Sea in September and already have a willing band of volunteers and a waiting list of local young people eager to join.

    We need help with the costs of equipment, training aids, hiring of suitable interim venue(s) and the costs of a suitable and permanent site to call home.

    Whether at sea or on land, the Sea Cadets offers young people across the UK amazing opportunities for personal development - by learning new skills and working in teams - we offer an environment where young people find new confidence and inspiration.

    Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets was created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building.

    Although jointly supported by the Marine Society & Sea Cadets, The Royal Navy and other UK maritime organisations each unit is responsible for raising its own funds to maintain their building and provide a fun and rewarding Sea Cadet experience at a local level.
