Working with local youth groups

After a combination of successful matches, quiz nights and sales of merchandise the KSA has been delighted to be able to carry on the support of local youth groups and help young people get afloat, particularly on traditional vessels. Last year we were able to help the Faversham Sea Scouts have a day aboard the barge Greta, and a hot August day could only offer the best conditions for young scouts finding their sea legs.
We have also been able to contribute towards the costs of getting some Faversham Sea Cadets afloat on the Maritime Trust vessels and one of their number had a trip at the end of the year.
We intend to continue this support in 2017 and we are, of course, grateful to our members, our sponsors and advertisers, the participants who come each year to the Swale and the committee members who organise all the events and who make all this financial support possible.
Thanks also to the 8th Faversham Sea Scout Troop for their very charming letter of appreciation to the KSA enclosing a fine collection of photos, one of which is posted here.
