Splash and March for Haringey Youth
Over seventy young people and their leaders from Haringey’s uniformed youth groups spent last weekend (30 June – 1 July) challenging themselves at their annual combined event, this year held at London District Sea Cadet Boat Station at Docklands. Raft building, canoeing, rowing and kayaking were all part of Saturday’s challenge with professional instruction and supervision provided throughout. While mainly intended for fun teams were marked and gained points on team spirit leadership and most improvement displayed during the various activities.
The annual event takes places in Armed Forces week and the Sunday parade reflects that. After the civic march and parade by the uniformed youth groups from TS Wizard along White Hart Lane, all assembled for an inspection at the Civic Centre in front of the Mayor of Haringey Councillor Gina Adamou accompanied by the Representative Deputy Lieutenant of the Borough Captain Peter Baker, Catherine West MP and other dignitaries.
The Mayor presented the winner of the most improved award to Andrew Myers Nobbs representing Scouting in Haringey. She remarked on how happy she was to be able to make the presentation and how proud she was of the young people and all their efforts. Captain Baker also took the opportunity to present the prestigious Representative Deputy Lieutenant’s Award for dedication in his cadet role to Able Cadet Renato Osmani of Haringey Sea Cadet Unit.
