Widnes sea cadets win praise at their inspection
WIDNES sea cadets received a glowing appraisal from both the Mayor and their Area Commander at their annual parade and inspection.
Commander Mark Irwin, a serving Royal Navy officer, declared himself ‘very impressed’ with the presentation of the Widnes Cadets during the inspection, also stating that they were some of the happiest he had met.
The Mayor and Mayoress presented the four annual awards given to cadets who had achieved the most throughout the year.
Senior cadet of the year was awarded to 17-year-old Michael Carroll, with 16-year-old Chloe Pritchard picking up cadet of the year and 14-year-old Callum McCue new entry of the year.
The DOLLY award, given for teamwork and positive participation in support of the cadets’ community and fundraising activities, was presented to 15-year-old Liam Leigh.
The Widnes unit also received a pennant from Commander Irwin for its overall efficiency during the year.
