Remembrance Day Parade 2011
This year saw the largest gathering of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the 23rd Bath (Avonvale) Scout Group for the annual Remembrance Day Parade in Bathford. The Parade was led by ex servicemen from the British Legion and marched from the British Legion to the Bathford Church. After a short service the Scouts laid a poppy reef and a special Scout Remembrance Poppy before heading back to the British Legion for an excellent lunch.
The Scout Remembrance Poppy had been made by all sections within the group. Each Beaver, Cub and Scout had been given a paper poppy petal and asked to write a note of remembrance on it before adding it to the poppy decoration. The result was an impressive sight and some of the messages were very thought provoking.
Thank you to all the Beavers, Cubs and Scout who attended the parade and that you to all the parents to also showed their support. There is no doubt that this year saw the largest presence from 23rd Bath (Avonvale) scouts and it helps to show the surrounding community what a strong group we have as well as pay our respects to our armed servicemen past and present.
