GROUP - Home
CUBS - Home


All Explorers, Scouts, Cub Scouts and Beaver Scouts are expected to attend Remembrance Day services to remember and pay their respects to those who have given their lives while doing their duty.

This year the Explorers, Scouts and Cubs will parade at Tattenhall and the Beavers will parade at Bickerton.

The Explorers, Scouts & Cubs will form up in the car park of Tattenhall Park Primary School and march to the Parish Church for the Service of Remembrance, after which they will walk to the War Memorial for the wreath laying service and then to the Barbour Institute from where they will be picked up.

Drop off: Explorers, Scouts & Cubs should arrive at the car park of Tattenhall Primary School no later than 09:20 on Sunday 10 November. The nominated Flag Bearers and Wreath Layers should arrive no later that 09:10

Dress: all attending must wear uniform (Explorers - NOT hoodies) with dark trousers and dark shoes; if the weather is cold they should wear additional clothes UNDER their uniform; coats will only be permitted if the weather is very wet

NOTE: anyone wishing to wear coats as we form up can do so, and then leave them in a car just before we set off for the Church. The car, and coats, will be taken to the Barbour Institute so that coats will be available again when we dismiss.

Church service: the Explorers, Scouts & Cubs will occupy reserved pews and several of them will be playing an active part in the service; everyone is welcome to attend the service in the Church, the wreath laying at the War Memorial, and refreshments in the Barbour Institute

Church collection: there will be a collection during the service in the Church; this will be in aid of the Royal British Legion and all Scouts should bring a contribution

Pick up: after the end of the short service at the War Memorial the Explorers, Scouts and Cubs will move to the Garden of Remembrance, from where they will be dismissed, and may be picked up from the Barbour Institute from about 1130
