Welcome to the Steyning & District Branch of The Royal British Legion
ARMY CADETS GATHERED ALONGSIDE THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION STEYNING BRANCH, AT THE WAR MEMORIAL GARDEN IN STEYNING.
At 10:00 am on Saturday 28th of March, four keen Army cadets from 22 Steyning Detachment gave up a morning of their weekend to help members of the RBL maintain their beautiful garden at the playing field in the heart of Steyning.
Cadets Ethan Edwards (13), Amelia Meierdirk (13) and Cadet Lance Corporals Olivia Walton (15) and Thea Bowman (14) arrived bright and early to assist with shovelling 3 tonnes of bark chippings over the flower beds to prevent weeds and restore the appearance of the garden. They came armed with shovels, spades and buckets, and in no time had helped to spread the entire mound of bark over the garden – a task that would have taken hours without their assistance.
The RBL Branch Chairman Lewis Whittaker said “A heartfelt thanks to everyone involved. I thought it was really great that the task was accomplished in an hour”.
Army Cadet Force Detachment Commander Lieutenant Nikki Cairns, who has been involved with the Army Cadet Force since 1995, said “It is wonderful to see our cadets willing to give up an hour or two of their Saturday morning to come and help such a worthy cause. The Royal British Legion do so much for our veterans, and I think that it is only right and fair that we, as a uniformed organisation, help them as much as we can. We really look forward to working with them more in the future, as it benefits all of us and raises the cadets’ awareness of the good work done by the RBL.”
