Cadets and Adults from TS Hastings Sea Cadets were once again very honoured to be invited to attend Hastings Twin Town of Oudenaarde Belgium to take part in the Victory in Europe Parade and Celebrations 6 May 2012. The cadets were outstanding in the parade and wreaths were laid at both the National and British Monuments.
The weekend was to encourage greater understanding and involvement in European affairs visiting sites of interest such as Tyne Cott Commonwealth War Graves and Menin Gate to witness the Last Post Ceremony carried out by the Fire Brigade of Ypres.
This year we were also very thankful to the Hastings Youth Council – Youth Cash project who were very supportive with a grant of £1000.00 to support the cadets venture opening this weekend up to more cadets than in previous years. On behalf of all at TS Hastings Sea Cadets I would like to thank both the Twinning Committees of Hastings and Oudenaade and the Hastings Youth Council.
