King’s Lynn Sea Cadets to Host First Open Day of the Year
- 01 March 2022
- King’s Lynn
The local unit hopes to show visitors the value of being part of the Sea Cadets.
King’s Lynn Sea Cadets is opening its doors to the public on Sunday 6th March, between 10am and 3pm. Free to attend and with food and drink on offer, it promises to be an exciting day for all in attendance.
TS Vancouver on St. Margaret’s Lane has been home to the King’s Lynn Sea Cadets since 1948, and the long history of the much-loved building will be on display for the public to visit during the Open Day. Cadets will be on hand to tell visitors about their experiences in the sea Cadets and what newcomers would benefit from by joining the unit.
Displays will be set up throughout the building, showcasing the range of activities and qualifications available to take part in as a cadet: from kayaking and windsurfing to rock climbing, camping and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Visitors will also have the option to take part in tours hosted by cadets and staff, where they will learn more about how the unit operates, and the roles everyone has in ensuring the smooth running of the building.
This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has considered joining the Sea Cadets either as a cadet or an adult volunteer to visit the unit and find out what it means to be part of the team.
