Remembrance Sunday 2014

Wreath of Poppies

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and leaders will be joining in the annual Remembrance Sunday celebration on November the 9th, marching in uniform from Stocksfield Station to the War Memorial. Parents are very welcome too! Please wear poppies if you have them.

We will meet in the Railway Station Car Park at 10.30 am, dressed ready to walk to the memorial. We should be back at the car park by about 11.30 am, with refreshments served afterwards at the community centre (SICA).

We hope for an especially large turnout given that this year will mark 100 years since the start of the First World War.
