"The club approached us about raising money for us and then did so at their annual bazaar, a gesture that is very much appreciated by all of us involved in the cadets." Sgt Gary Phillips added: "The cadets are a great bunch of young people from diverse family backgrounds - they all appear really enthusiastic about being cadets and can't wait to get out into the community assisting in projects and tackling our neighbourhood PACT priorities."We are still accepting applicants, so if there are any young people between the ages of 13 and 16 in the catchment area who are interested in joining, please contact Seaton Police Station on (01297) 626740 or visit our website at http://neighbourhoodpolicing.devon-cornwall.police.uk/
