Clubs, Societies and Associations: St Mary's Bay
The Army Cadet Force is the army's voluntary youth organisation for young people between the ages of 12 and 18. It is one of the country's leading youth organisations, and is run on military style guidelines so a certain amount of discipline is to be expected.
There is a standard training syllabus (Army Proficiency Certificate ACF) that the Cadets follow, additionally many other courses and activities are available to them. Various additional courses are available to the cadets depending on their interests and skills, and in addition to the training syllabus, they also operate the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme (which is closely linked to the training syllabus).
The Army Cadet Force unit on Romney Marsh is based at the Cadet Hut in Jefferstone Lane, St Mary's Bay. They parade on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm.

The New Romney & District Flower Club is a small club but very friendly, and in its fifty years of existence has never been large. Meetings are held in the St Mary’s Bay Village Hall at Jefferstone Lane in St Mary’s Bay, on the second Monday of each month (Bank Holiday Mondays may differ) doors open at 7.00pm, meetings commence at 7.30pm.
Over the past two years we have managed to increase our membership and that means we can have a few more demonstrators for the year 2014. Instead of being a predominately a hand’s on club, there will be six demonstrations, four workshops, one visit to Hythe for a open demonstration plus a garden visit.
The New Romney & District Flower Club is a member of the Kent Area of NAFAS.
Visitors are most welcome and a small charge of £4.00 is made for a work shop, £5 to a Demonstration. The full membership current price is £29.00 for 12 meetings, as we have twelve meetings this equates to less than £2.50p per meeting.
