A group of dedicated Skegness cadets have won a top award for their participation in community projects.

The Skegness Army Cadet force has been taking part in a community challenge during the past year actively working to improve the area.

On several occasions the youngsters have helped with Coastal Access for All, clearing pathways, picked litter and much more to create a portfolio of all the work they have achieved over the year to win the Community Challenge award and £500.

The Force was presented the award at a recent annual camp trip.

“It must include max participation to be included in the award,” said Jim Nisbet, Detachment commander.

“I am really proud because it shows how the youth are good in the town. They have engaged in all these community projects doing something to benefit the town,” he added.

“It shows that young people can do something for the community - and to win the award and the money is just a bonus,” said Jim.

The Skegness Army Cadets meet on Thursdays from 6.30pm to 9pm at Grantham Drive, Skegness.

Youngsters must be aged from 12 years, and be in year eight, up until 18 years and nine months. Those interested can just pop along.
