Lord-Lieutenant of Essex appoints five Cadets to special role

Lord lieutenant cadets for essex 2023

Five young people were appointed by HM Lord-Lieutenant of Essex, Mrs Jenny Tolhurst, to Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets for this year at a special event in Ingatestone Hall. Nominated by their cadet leaders, these cadets were chosen because they stood out as ambassadors for their cadet forces, they are reliable, smart, and have the maturity and confidence to think on their feet and talk to everyone from a Royal visitor to fellow cadets.

The Lord-Lieutenant praised the cadets for how many other high level activities and studies these young people manage to undertake, as well as their huge commitment to their cadet forces.  The role of the Lord-Lieutenant’s cadets is to assist the Lord-Lieutenant most usually at civic and military events and parades.

The event also served to recognise some of the Cadet Force Adult Volunteers who freely give up countless hours to lead, enthuse, mentor and train the growing number of cadets in Essex. Certificates of Meritorious Service were awarded to five adults this year.
