Remembrance 2018

Remembrance Day events have always been important to the Scout Association and I would encourage you to read about the contribution the Scouts made during both World Wars here. This year was extremely poignant being the Centenary of the end of WWI and it was pleasing to see the district out in force.

It was also fantastic to see groups organising  a number of engaging activities explaining the importance and symbolism behind remembrance to our young people as part of the programme. We were also probably the largest youth organisation participating in remembrance with groups attending services in Widnes, Runcorn, Halton Village, Moore, Frodsham, Helsby, Elton, Kingsley and Norley.

I was particularly impressed with 4th Widnes’ efforts and their spectacular installation they made on the side of their HQ which combined the recycling of waste plastics with a stunning tribute . Equally 1st Newton & Kingsley’s display of ¬†artefacts on loan from the Imperial War Museum North which they used to engage with the rest of the community was also very impressive.
