Clydebank Sea Cadets had an action-packed summer thanks to funding from YouthLink Scotland.

Youngsters in the area enjoyed many activities which included cycling, kayaking, archery, football, swimming and adventure training as part of their Summer of Play programme.

The programme was to enable them to discover their sense of adventure and try out some new skills.

Peter Adams, vice chairman of Clydebank Sea Cadets said: “Having started by purchasing six mountain bikes we can hardly keep our youngsters off them, and our cadets are now no strangers to the bike routes, and already have a few 12 milers under their belts.

“We have just enjoyed an amazing weekend at the Sea Cadets Boating Station at Port Edgar, South Queensferry where the sun beamed down as we glided beneath the Forth Bridge in our rowing boats, and along the banks of the Forth in our kayaks.”

The Sea Cadets is a youth charity that uses a nautical medium to provide young people with fun and adventure as well as giving them the opportunity to make friends, gain skills and build confidence.

The group is currently recruiting members aged between 10 and 17. For more information search the group on Facebook and give them a message.

Peter added: “You do not need any experience, just the willingness to have a go, make friends and aim high.”
