3 Platoon Detachment Hayling Island. Hampshire & Isle of Wight Army Cadet Force

I am the local detachment commander for 3 Platoon detachment on Hayling Island, I'm really keen to let the Hayling Island community know that we exist! Recently, there have been a lot of community Facebook Posts enquiring about the building and what its used for! 

I am responsible for running 3 Platoon Army Cadet Force at the Old Lifeboat Station on the Sea front and I'd be the first to agree that the ACF sign is badly positioned and is too small to be effective.

We are in urgent need of sponsorship, or local donations to allow us to renovate the building. Apart from the 15+ cadets that attend on a regular basis, the platoon is short on numbers. I'm hoping that another recruitment drive on the Island will produce further interest.

Research has shown me that there is not much to do for the 12-18 age groups therefore there should be potential recruits available.
