Britannia Royal Naval College cadets join beach clean campaign
OFFICER Cadets from St Vincent Squadron at Britannia Royal Naval College have joined forces with Keep Britain Tidy to carry out a beach cleaning operation in the Dartmouth area.
The team of 15 Cadets spent the day picking up cans, bottles, plastic and even a full drum of oil, which had been abandoned or washed up on the beaches to support the Keep Britain Tidy's Beach Care Project.
Officer Cadet David Emmerson said: "The Cadets were shocked by the quantity and variety of rubbish that had been left on the beaches, but overall the day was a great success. We enjoyed the opportunity to take a break from the normal college routine and aid the community."
The Cadets taking part are in the second phase of their 30 week course, known as the marinisation phase.
Each group is required to undertake a project in the community during their time at BRNC as a way of testing their leadership, organisational and communication skills outside of the Naval environment.
