Double delight for Minehead Cadets
3:00pm Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
ST JOHN Cadets in Minehead are celebrating on two counts after winning county awards for recruiting success and voluntary service.
The cadet unit won the county trophy for its success in recruiting new members, an award that recognises the increase among its ranks of cadets aged between 10 and 16 years of age.
Minehead cadet, Alfie Martin was awarded the county cup for the most hours of voluntary service for an under 14-yearold over the past year.
In this time, Alfie has given up over 50 hours of his time supporting first aid cover at events.
Alfie said: “Although I was really pleased to receive the award it feels like I got it for doing something I really enjoy.
“I joined St John to learn first aid after seeing someone get an injury at a BMX competition but I did not realise just how much I would learn and the opportunities it would give me.”
Minehead Cadets meet from 7-9pm every Tuesday evening and the adult unit meet at the same time on Fridays.
Anyone interested is invited to go along to the Minehead division headquarters in North Road or by contacting Janice Malarkey at: Janice.email@example.com
