Ardrossan Sea Cadets are looking for help and assistance to demolish 7 portacabins that are unfit to be used due to water ingress and need to be dismantled and disposed of in an environmental way that meets all the government and council conditions for disposal. If you’re a company that could help with your services the cadets would be internally grateful as this will allow the location to continue with its phased rebuild.
