Remembrance Service

Posted on Sunday, November 11th, 2018

Thank you to members of Active Support, the Deputy DC,Leaders and members of the 7th Cubs,and Leaders and members of the 13th Group,for supporting The British Legion. All of the above spent long hours selling poppies in Waitrose Store, Portswood.A bonus was that one leader and Scouts from the 13th were invited to visit a nearby nursing home for elderly residents to distribute poppies.They were very well received.What a great demonstration of Scouts working in the community.Well done.I will publish the amount collected when British Legion tell me.

Thank you to everyone from different sections who attended the,Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph. Well done and thank you to Explorers Sophie and Emma from the Endeavour Unit who laid a wreath on behalf of the Scouts. We had 20 members attended the service which was good to have our Scout uniforms on display to the public, and demonstrate that young people do care and that “we remember them”. My thanks to you all.
