Guildford Sea Cadets
We are a very well established Sea Cadet unit that has been in operation since 1942. We were recognised in 2010 as one of the best units in the southern area. This is not only because of our central location, right in the heart of Guildford, but because of our ethos and commitment to provide top notch activities for young people.
Our superb location, perched on the banks of the River Wey near the National Trust's Dapdune Wharf, is so close to the water that you can touch it. And this fits well with our aim; to give young people the opportunity to get out onto the water, gain confidence and have a lot of laughs at the same time.
We want to keep our cadets active both on an off the water. Long evenings in the Summer months mean loads of time on the water: Kayaking, sailing, rowing and driving power boats. Then when the nights draw cold and you think that all we can do is in a classroom you find we keep active: rock climbing, leadership games and activities and sports games.
We currently have 65 cadets, male and female aged between 10 and 18, of whom 16 are Royal Marine Cadets.
We have a wide range of facilities and instructional staff which means we can offer you the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe environment whilst having loads of fun!

Aims and Objectives
We are a registered charity whose volunteers aim to provide a forum for debate about the issues affecting our town and borough.
1/ We are interested in following issues that affect our town and surrounding area:
- Conserving the best of Guildford Town, Urban Area, Villages and Countryside
- Promoting high standards of planning and architecture
- Influencing the pace and type of development for the future
- Raising the public awareness on issues related to our Built Environment, Heritage and Future
- Identifying, integrating and considering matters that impact across the borough e.g. Transport Flows.
2/ Our Scope
- Geographically we concentrate on Guildford Town and Urban Area but maintain an active interest on major matters affecting the whole of the borough and beyond.
- We recognise areas in the borough have active and effective local groups whose work we don’t wish to replicate.
3/ We have some key principles:
- We recognise Guildford and environs will continue to develop and evolve to meet the needs of the population, and this needs to be managed.
- Guildford should remain a proper town, not just a commuter town for London, so we need to support economic activity, our world class educational facilities, and provide a wide range of public facilities e.g. Theatres, Entertainment Venues, Galleries, Meeting Places, Public Realm etc.
- The area needs to be ‘competitive’ with other South East areas in the Arc formed by Cambridge – Oxford – Guildford – Redhill - Ashford.
- Guildford and environs should aspire to be a leader in preserving heritage assets and surrounding countryside whilst enabling vibrant and sensitive development.
- Environment will be a key consideration including:
- Measures to encourage modal transport shift, pollution reduction, reduction in traffic congestion.
- Measures to encourage alternative energy, management/recycling of waste and flood protection.
- The town and its surroundings need to be better linked in a sustainable manner, including making public transport accessible and attractive.
- Guildford and environs should be a borough for all and thus should provide affordable accommodation for all age groups.
- We will actively seek to collaborate with other relevant groups on matters of common interest.
