Sea Cadets from Ellesmere Port on Merseyside were presented with trophies, shields and certificates during their annual Presentation Night.
29 cadets received awards for their hard work over 2015 at the ceremony held in their HQ in Appleton Drive, Whitby.
The event was also attended by Captain Peter Hutchinson, Treasurer for The Friends of the Sea, who handed the cadets their awards and presented the group with a donation of £250. He was accompanied by Senior Staff Officer Sea Cadets North West, Cdr (SCC) J Evans MBE RNR, Mr Terry Robinson, Chair of the Sea Cadet Association Merseyside, and Cllr Tony Sherlock who also handed out awards.
PO (SCC) AP Ainslie, the Unit’s Commanding Officer, said: “The annual presentation evening is a time to reward the cadets for their hard work and many achievements throughout the year. The whole ship’s company should be proud of everything they have done this year, as I am immensely proud to be their Commanding Officer.”
All awards recipients were chosen for their commitment and self-motivation.
