Community Partnerships - CDS Security and 1st Sailors Bay Sea Scouts
In today's world, social and community responsibility has become an important part not only in everyday life but also in business. CDS Security believes in building close relationships with the local community and was pleased to be able to help the 1st Sailors Bay Sea Scouts in their need for a security system. With the donation of an Alarm Panel and its installation at their headquarters in Castlecrag, the sea scouts are ensured that their equipment and premises are secured.
The 1st Sailors Bay Sea Scouts are a volunteer sporting and activity organisation that has over 70 members, with three youth sections ranging in age from 8 to 18 years.
1st Sailors Bay Sea Scouts is local to Castlecrag, but has its origins in 1st Chatswood Scouts which was formed in 1914 with the group splitting into Land and Sea Scouts in 1932. In 1979 1st Sailors Bay moved to its current premises at the old milk depot at 43 Eastern Valley Way.
Sea scouts are like other scouting groups, with the exception that most of their activities are based in and around water. Canoeing, kayaking, sailing, rafting and paddle boarding are just some of the water-based activities. Other scout activities such as camping, hiking, bush craft and rock climbing are also an integral part of their program. The Sea Scouts also attend many scout events during the year, such as Jamborees, Cuborees and Scout Hikes throughout Australia.
