Seaford College CCF held its annual Regimental Dinner at the beginning of the month. Organised as an enjoyable evening for both staff and senior Cadets, it was also a cultural enrichment opportunity. Many of the cadets had speaking parts, including the reading of VC citations and the recounting of regimental and service honours, as well as the grace and toasts, all rounded off by the senior cadet, Staff Sergeant Alex Reese, addressing the guests, staff and Cadets.

Contingent Commander Major Andrew Plewes RM said: “The evening was a great success and definitely fulfilled the purpose of thanking our guests for their support, as well as strengthening the camaraderie and esprit de corps within the CCF.

“The event also provided the opportunity to ‘dine out’ the departing School Staff Instructor WO2 Stevie Gerrard after an illustrious career in the Parachute Regiment followed by an equally gruelling 24 years at Seaford College. He will be remembered very fondly by a generation of Seafordians and CCF staff for his inimitable style and hugely significant input to the school CCF.”
