We will selling poppies in Watling Street in aid of Royal British Legion on Saturday 11th November. We will be based by the War Memorial.  We will be selling between 10.45am and 2pm, so Beavers, Cubs and Scouts could come for ½ hour – 1 hour slots in uniform. At 11.00am we will hold two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day, so please arrive before/after this. Anyone under 14 will need an adult with them, some leaders will be present but any parents who can help would be greatly appreciated.
Then on Sunday 13th November we will again be parading along Watling Street, with other Scouts and Guides to the War Memorial and take part in the Act of Remembrance.  Please could your child attend in his uniform with a poppy, if cold please wear extra layers under the uniform so it can be seen, rather than hidden under a coat. We will meet at the Radlett Centre at 10:15 ready to march to the War Memorial at 10.30 where the service will begin at 10:45. This is an opportunity for us as a Scout group to be seen working in the community, so it would be good to see as many Beavers, Cubs and Scouts as possible.
