Congratulations to L/Cpl Simon who has won the Hartlepool Rotary Club's Best Cadet award for 2016 which was announced at last weekends Trafalgar Night Dinner on board HMS Trincomalee.
The winner of this award is voted for by the cadets themselves, who are asked to vote for the cadet who they feel best deserves the award based upon a number of factors including helpfulness, teamwork and leadership.
L/Cpl Simon was presented with a gold plated Boatswains Call by the president of Hartlepool Rotary Club, Mr Alan Lakey. He also wins a weeks voyage on board one of the Sea Cadets' offshore vessels which will see him experience what it is like to live and work on a ship whilst sailing around the UK.
The prizes for this award are fully funded by Hartlepool Rotary Club and have been for a number of years. We thank them again for supporting our young people.
