Tenby Town Council has approved a grant to Tenby Sea Cadets of £2,500 in tribute to a long-standing and dedicated volunteer who passed away last month.

Councillors decided that this grant should act as a tribute to the late Retired Lieutenant Roy Broxham RNR, who for many years led the Sea Cadets in Tenby.

The Cadets had requested a grant to enable them to purchase sports kits for their members. This will enable them to participate in more activities, on top of the wide range of activities that their members are already involved in.

Tenby Sea Cadets have 40 members ranging from aged 9 to 18. They are supported by a team of adult volunteer leaders who are carrying on the work of Lt Broxham.

Tenby Sea Cadets is an independent registered charity

Mayor of Tenby, Cllr Dai Morgan said: “I am delighted that we are able to award this grant to the Sea Cadets, recognising the fantastic work that they do and supporting them in their future plans.

“Lieutenant Broxham gave over 25 years service to the Sea Cadets. Organisations like this rely on adult volunteer support and Roy was an excellent servant for the town.”

Seconding the motion to approve the grant, Cllr Sam Skyrme-Blackhall said: “Roy Broxham gave so much to young people in this town and it is fitting that this grant is awarded in his memory.”
