Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

IT WAS a busy Novem­ber for South­port Sea Cadets, as they dom­i­nated re­gional swim­ming com­pe­ti­tions then took part in a pa­rade at Trafal­gar Square.

The cadets won the North West Lan­cashire Dis­trict swim­ming com­pe­ti­tion, then went on to the Area Swim­ming com­pe­ti­tion where they achieved fur­ther suc­cess.

Nikki Fell, PR of­fi­cer for the cadets, said: “South­port Sea Cadets not only won the North West Lan­cashire

Dis­trict swim­ming com­pe­ti­tion, they then went on to smash the Area Swim­ming com­pe­ti­tion in Black­pool.

“Our cadets brought home five gold, five sil­ver and four bronze medals.

“They com­peted against 50 dif­fer­ent sea cadets units and over 150 other cadets.

“We are very proud of all of them, all their hard work and train­ing for this event cer­tainly paid off. But most im­por­tantly, each and ev­ery­one of them had so much fun.”

The sea cadets were also proud to see six of their mem­bers take part in a very spe­cial Trafal­gar Square pa­rade.

Nikki said: “Six South­port cadets took part in the Na­tional 2018 Trafal­gar Pa­rade in Lon­don, three of them per­form­ing in a PT dis­play in Trafal­gar Square and three oth­ers took part in the pa­rade through Lon­don, in­clud­ing a march past Buck­ing­ham Palace.

“The event was fan­tas­tic to watch and it’s a mas­sive achieve­ment for those cadets who took part.

“We at South­port Sea Cadets are ex­tremely proud of them.”
