An active outreach programme is organised at Britannia Royal Naval College as part of the new entry training programme.

The activity provides an awareness of the Royal Navy commitment to community relations and the further afield efforts in disaster relief.

During the first term of 2001 there have been four new-entry divisions and therefore four different organisations have enjoyed the inject of significant man-power to their efforts.

Victorious Division made a visit to the Stover Canal Preservation Society in late January. The College has been a regular supporter of the society’s work over recent years.

"Whenever the cadets from BRNC visit we know that everyone in the group will work extremely hard and with great enthusiasm at whatever task we give them," said Roger Harding, Chairman of the Stover Canal Society. "Our working parties really enjoy working alongside them all. They are a real credit to the College."

Slightly closer to home Ambush Division visited Kingswear Primary which was also a return visit. The school originally called for help last year

School Governor, Mrs Gill Davies said "once again the tremendous effort of the cadets working alongside our small working party was simply fantastic. The children are going to get such benefit from the development of this outside education area. We are extremely grateful to the young men and women."

The Ambush team were accompanied by some visiting German Navy cadets from the
