Remembrance 2018

Sunday 11thNovember. 10.15am

As you know, 2018 marks the centenary of the end of WW1. Remembrance Sunday falls on Armistice Day itself, 11thNovember.

Barton Scout Group will be taking a central role in the village commemoration so please put this date in your diary now and keep the day clear.

Meet at Barton Village Hall at 10.15am in smart uniform (Uniform top, necker (washed and ironed), school trousers/skirt, school shoes and a poppy).

We will parade to the church where we will form a guard of honour for the congregation arriving for the service. We will then take our places in the church for the service after which we will lead the congregation back to the War Memorial at the hall for 2 minutes silence.

We will then join the community in the hall where we will present a slide show of our trip to Ypres followed by a curry lunch cooked and served by the Scouts and Explorers.

There will be no charge for lunch but we welcome donations in lieu which will be given to The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.

This is a very important event for our Scout Group so please do your very best to be there. All members of the Group and their parents are encouraged to join us.
