CMT Cadets to help restore TS Queen Mary
Clyde Marine Training are delighted to announce that through our cadets we will be partnering with charitable organisation Friends of TS Queen Mary during the restoration of this iconic ship. Friends of the Queen Mary plan to restore the vessel and bring her back to the Clyde, ultimately having her berthed on the Clyde and operating as a maritime museum, restaurant and venue. A large number of our cadets have volunteered to provide labour for the restoration and will be working on the vessel over the coming weeks.
On Friday 17th February 6 Clyde Marine Training cadets, alongside Operations Manager Katy Womersley, and Training Officers Ruth Scott and Nicola Arnott, visited the TS Queen Mary to welcome First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to the vessel. The First Minister was given a tour of the vessel and had the opportunity to speak with the cadets about their involvement in the project.
This is a fantastic opportunity for our cadets and a great project for them to be involved in. It will be a unique opportunity for the cadets to learn first-hand about the craftsmanship and engineering which went into 1930s Clyde-built vessels and we look forward to seeing the work progress.
