NAILSEA army cadets have presented Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club with a plaque for providing a home for them when their base was destroyed.

When fire ravaged their cadet hut in 2009, offers of help from firefighters in Nailsea, the rugby club and the Ring O’ Bells ensured the cadets had somewhere to parade.

For the majority of the past four years the cadets have been using the rugby club’s facilities free of charge, while they waited for their new headquarters to be built.

When Nailsea Cadet Centre was officially opened, Jeff Morris, Ross Parsons and Louise Turner from the rugby club, were invited to the building to be presented with a framed citation and plaque to thank them for their support.
