Poppies and Remembrance Parade

Posted on Wednesday, November 12th, 2014


Thank you to everyone in the District who helped with selling poppies this year. My thanks go to not only members of Active Support, but also to members of the District Team,and Scouters, Scouts and Explorers from the 13th Group, who covered both of the Sainsburys stores all day on last Saturday and at times during the week. I will publish how much we collected when the British Legion tells me.
Can I also congratulate all of those who attended the Cenotaph Parade on Sunday morning. My own two Beavers and Cub who laid our poppy wreath were smart and well behaved, as were all of the other Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers who were in the District contingent. You did yourselves proud and many people commented on the fact that young people were present at the service. Well done. Mike Jackson, who paraded with you, has asked to be included in my comments and shares my opinion on how well you all did.
Well done to you all,
George Longhurst
Active Support Manager
