LITTLEHAMPTON Sea Cadet Unit has welcomed a special visitor after unprecedented success in district competitions.
Junior cadets won the Warrior Trophy for achieving the most points in district competitions, for the second year running.
Littlehampton is the first unit in the district to retain the trophy.
Tim Ash, executive officer of HMS Warrior, visited the unit last Friday to celebrate the cadets’ success.
Brian Osborne, commanding officer at Littlehampton, said: “This was a very special occasion and privilege for us.
“To win the trophy, the juniors cadets had to participate in six competitions. These are piping, rowing, a five-a-side football tournament, potted sports tournament, swimming and shooting.
“By winning the trophy, the junior cadets also win a guided tour of the naval ship HMS Warrior, which they are all thoroughly looking forward to.
“I would like to say a massive thank you for all their hard work and commitment and well done.”
Young people aged ten and over who are interested in joining can arrange a trial night by emailing Littlehampton_scc@hotmail.co.uk or calling 01903 732462. The unit is open Tuesdays and Fridays, 7pm to 9pm.
