IOBA Chairman (Andrew Butler 77/78) will be traveling to the Unit to make this very special presentation on behalf of you, to A/PO (SCC) Matthew Tregoning Commanding Officer of ‘T.S. INTREPID the ‘Indefatigable Cup’, known once as the ‘Merseyside Navy League – Swimming Gala Trophy’, and a monetary award on behalf of the IOBA.

The Unit made sustained progress throughout last year 2017, with an effective training programme and the taking part of District and Area events. This has required huge effort and commitment and they thoroughly deserve the award.

The Sea Cadet unit was awarded a Burgee by the Captain of the Sea Cadet Corps ‘Captain Phil Russell RN’,  the Burgee is the highest award that can be awarded to a Sea Cadet Corps Unit in recognition of the hard work of the Volunteers, Cadets and UMC.

Citation:  Cheshunt Unit has endured hard times in recent years, losing their unit HQ a few years ago, which resulted in them having to relocate three times to temporary locations before securing their current base. They had moved away from their “home” community, losing not only the HQ they had been in for many years, but also the loss of staff and cadets who all came from the local community. The Commanding Officer at the time worked tirelessly with the UMT to find new premises back within Cheshunt, but with little luck. The endless work and worry resulted in the CO having to step down due to health, with the new CO frequently not able to attend the unit, leaving a young and inexperienced PO to try to run things. With little adult help, few cadets and just a very small committee, the best they were able to do was keep the two or three cadets reasonably engaged on a parade night. Attendance at anything outside of the unit was nil, and the unit seemed set to close.The CO soon realised that he would be unable to lead them out of their predicament, and handed over to PO Matthew Tregoning a year ago. This young PO stepped up to the challenge and quickly set about rebuilding the unit’s compliment whilst developing his own skills. After approximately two years parading in a delapidated church hall, the unit was notified they would have to relocate again due the redevelopment of the church site. They secured a new HQ in a Scout Hall in Cheshunt which has the benefit of a large playground behind the unit, and cheap, fully fit for purpose premises with some security, allowing this new CO and a previously appointed Unit Chair to begin to rebuild. Cheshunt unit is now back! They are visible at competitions and events and across the community, which is not only pleasing to see but a testament to Matthew and the small team and the work that they have done in rebuilding.Cheshunt’s cadet numbers are now healthy and stable at maximum capacity. The cadets have an exciting and engaging programme of experiences and they are working on a plan to recruit more adult volunteers to give cadets the best cadet experience possible.In 2016, before Petty Officer Tregoning took command, Cheshunt’s UR score was 46. 2017 saw the RNP score increase to 69, the largest increase in score in the area. The unit was awarded its first pennant for many years, as well as a CSC Commendation – just reward for the dedication and hard work that the staff, committee and cadets have put in over the year to improve TS Intrepid. From near closure to commendation in little over a year – I believe that this is a worthy nomination. Winning this award will give all at Cheshunt Unit the recognition they rightly deserve.

Venue: Old Church Chapel Street, Newhaven, East Sussex. BN9 9QD

Date: Friday 2nd June 2017

Time: Arrive at 18:30 – In time to carry out formal parade and Inspection for 19:15. till approx. 22:00 (times TBC).

Dress Code: Mess Uniform / Suit.

IOBA Chairman (Andrew Butler 77/78) will be travelling to the Unit to make this very special presentation to Heather Wells CPO (SCC) Commanding Officer of ‘T.S. DEFIANCE the ‘Indefatigable Cup‘, known once as the ‘Merseyside Navy League – Swimming Gala Trophy’, and a monetary award on behalf of the IOBA.

The Unit made sustained progress throughout last year 2016, with an effective training programme and the taking part of District and Area events. This has required huge effort and commitment and they thoroughly deserve the award.

The Sea Cadet unit was awarded a Burgee by the Captain of the Sea Cadet Corps ‘Captain Phil Russell RN’,  the Burgee is the highest award that can be awarded to a Sea Cadet Corps Unit in recognition of the hard work of the Volunteers, Cadets and UMC.

Citation:  After a poor year in 2015 achieving only 59 points and no award, TS Defiance has pulled together and concentrated on establishing themselves again, delivering high quality training and fun for the cadets. They have worked incredibly hard and have made substantial gains across the board. The standard of dress and bearing is always a good indicator of unit performance. The Cadets are proud of TS Defiance, they are smart and represented the District at the Drill and Piping Area Competition. A significant step forward in boating hours has been achieved with an increase of 22% to 36 hours / cadet, which is excellent. Paddle-sports accounts for approximately half the hours with the remaining spread evenly across rowing, sailing and power. The unit has appointed a new Boats Officer and gained improved access to the river, which will continue to have an impact. It is especially pleasing that the unit has worked extremely hard to achieve qualifications and has doubled its success rate. It is also encouraging the unit is to engage the DofE and BTEC award processes and has signed cadets onto both schemes. Recruitment is good and increases in both BJ and Juniors has been achieved equating to an overall increase of 11%. The unit recognises they are still at 78% capacity and have an active programme of developing the Cadet experience in parallel with increasing overall numbers to achieve their goal of 100% + capacity next year. Having an extremely effective and productive training officer, the unit has maximised the use of District, Area and National training assets which broadens the horizons of the cadets, achieves qualifications and improves the overall cadet experience. The unit is also actively involved in the local community and attended fetes, festivals, appeals, dinners and the normal parades and ceremonials. A good cross-section of events that maintains the interest of the cadets and is valued by the community. The infrastructure of the unit is rather old and difficult to maintain, however there is a solid plan being driven by an energetic Chairman who has a clear vision for the unit. The unit has benefited from good leadership and management both from uniformed and UMT personnel, who have worked well together. Overall, TS Defiance has worked incredibly hard to ensure a solid foundation for the future has been achieved. Their improvement from 59 points last year to 78 ( Burgee awarded) this year is truly remarkable. With a clear plan for the future, their journey is by no means at an end and they are very strongly recommended for the TS Indefatigable Cup award being the most improved unit in the Southern Area.
