History made with new Lt. Gov Cadets

Four new Lieutenant-Governor’s Cadets have been appointed this week at a ceremony at Government House.

For the first time in the 32-year history of the scheme, the new cohort includes one Cadet - Joshua Anderson - who is not a member of a local youth organisation.

The new recruits are Joshua from the College of Further Education, Rosie Linane and Joseph Morris of the Bailiwick Scouts, and Zebedee Wheeler, of the Elizabeth College CCF.

“I’ve really enjoyed meeting my new Cadets for the first time this evening,” said the Lieutenant-Governor, Vice Admiral Sir Ian Corder. “As ever, they are interesting and impressive young people who each bring something different to the appointment. I’m looking forward to working with them.”

Each Cadet was presented with a medal engraved with their name, and a woven badge to be worn while on duty. They have all become members of the Youth Commission and Alderney’s Youth Forum in accordance with their new role. 

Charlie Cox, CEO of the Youth Commission, said that “the Cadets form an important part of the Youth Commission’s Youth Forum, and we look forward to working with them in their term.”

The Lieutenant-Governor said he enjoyed the ceremony, but felt that it was a particularly poignant one heading into his final year in office. 

“This is probably the last time I’ll present these medals,” he explained. “These Cadets have been appointed to serve throughout the remainder of my time in office so, like them, I’m looking forward to a busy and memorable year.”
