Temporary Sea Cadets Centre opens


The temporary Sea Cadets Centre at the former Rouge Bouillon Police Headquarters has been officially opened by the Minister for Home Affairs.

The Sea Cadets will operate from Rouge Bouillon for the next two years while a more permanent location is identified and delivered.

Minister for Home Affairs, Connétable Len Norman said: "I am pleased that in conjunction with the Minister for Infrastructure, we have established Rouge Bouillon as a suitable venue for the Sea Cadets for the next two years.

"I would like to reassure the group that I am committed to also delivering a permanent base for them. We will be working with the Sea Cadets to ensure that their needs are met and they have a good quality and appropriate facility to operate from, and in the meantime I am very pleased that we have been able to deliver this new more fit for purpose temporary facility for them."

Commanding Officer Andre Bonjour said: "We very much appreciate the support and provision made by the Government, we are now in facilities which are fit for purpose and safe. There has been an immense effort by our volunteers totalling over 1500 hours to move into the new premises and ready them to receive our 101 cadets for training and associated organisations that we are working with to make the facility multifunctional. We are currently recruiting Adult Volunteers to help with the influx of new recruits.
