We are Evesham Sea Cadets and part of the UK's oldest nautical youth charity offering fun and friendship and great training.
Evesham has had a Sea Cadet Unit for many years. The current unit was commissioned on 22nd May 1993, by Lady and Admiral Sir Peter Herbert KCB OBE CBIM MINoE, on a hot summers day, with the support of the whole of Warwickshire District Sea Cadets.
Today we are a thriving unit, achieving burgee status for the last nine years in a row, and now the third largest unit in the South west Area with over 130 enrolled staff and cadets. In 2013 we won the converted Stephenson's Trophy, awarded to the best all round unit in the South West of England, a massive achievement, which we have managed to retain in 2014. In October 2014 we hosted the District Trafalgar Parade in Evesham for the first time in ten years, a major event for the unit.
We welcome all young people aged between 10 and 18, and welcome all new recruits, from all diverse communities and abilities to come and join our team. We are constantly on the look out for adult volunteers to come and join our staff, and stress no prior Royal Naval knowledge is necessary.
Evesham Sea Cadets is an independent Registered Charity and it is affliated to the national organsation "Marine Society and Sea Cadets". Our trustees form the Unit Management Team.
