Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service

10th November 2019 @ 09:00 11:30

This year marks 80 years since the start of the second World War.

Once again, we will be parading from Elton Community Centre to St James Church in Ince, followed by a service at St James Church.

The parade will be assembling at Elton Community Centre from 9am ready for departure at approximately 9:20am. Parents, relatives and members of the public are invited to walk at the rear of the parade and any members of the Armed Forces are welcome to parade with the Scouts.

The service at St James Church starts at 10am and is usually finished between 11am and 11:30am – however, there is no return parade..

Please can we request that ALL Beavers, Cubs and Scouts wear smart uniform  – aka School or Scout Activity Trousers/Skirt and Shoes (no leggings or trainers please). A poppy can also be worn if desired and there will be a collection during the service.

We would like to encourage a good turn out for the parade and service please, especially with us once again receiving support from Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire Police to enforce road closures for the parade to take place.

Although attendance to Church Services are entirely optional, we do actively encourage attendance (regardless of faith) as attendance to religious services are a critical requirement of achieving a number of the “Challenge” badges which make up the Chief Scouts Awards. Group attendance also acts as a good way to build on our relationships within the local community.

The group will also be attending the laying of the wreath at the Cenotaph in Thornton-Le-Moors. If anyone can make it there, it would be appreciated by the Church and the Group. There may also be a second wreath laying at the new memorial outside the Elton Community Centre (we’ll confirm this on the day).
