Welcome to Thornbury Youth Hub!
We are a team run by young people, for young people.
Our aim is to keep you up to date with the latest events, clubs and services available in the local area.
The media has been full of the Royal Navy's newest addition to the fleet, HMS Queen Elizabeth. However, more locally TS Battleaxe (Thornbury Sea Cadets) has recently taken delivery of a new addition to their fleet, TS Hydro. Admittedly, at 5.5 metres their new Trinity 500 rowing boat is not as large as the new aircraft carrier.
The acting Officer in Charge at TS Battleaxe, Lieutenant Commander (SCC) Alison Fowler RNR said "This new addition to our fleet will mean that we will be able to offer an even wider range of activities at our Saul Junction boating station."
"We already have another Trinity 500 as well as a flotilla of kayaks but Sea Cadets offer valuable life skills on and off the water including catering, D of E, leadership and engineering.
If you are aged 10 to 18 the Sea Cadets really do offer a life of adventure. Adults can get in on the fun of course, as instructors. We will of course, provide adults with the necessary training." she added.
TS Hydro was officially commissioned by the unit's padre, the Reverend Dr Jan van der Lely in the presence of some of TS Battleaxe's ship's company, the cadets and adults to landlubbers on 10th August 2017. It is hoped that she will be in use in the next few weeks.
One of the unit's instructors, Petty Officer (SCC) Christopher Batt said "I am pleased that the name TS Hydro was proposed by one of the unit's newest cadets and selected from a short list by the whole ship's company."
