Remembrance Weekend saw Scouts across Central Notts, take the time to remember those Servicemen and women who served their country over the years. This year, Remembrance weekend was more poignant than usual, as for many groups it was the first time in 2 years, that Groups were able to gather to commemorate the day.
On Friday 12th November, 3rd Woodthorpe Scout Group, held their annual Remembrance Service for all members. You may recall, that during the height of the Pandemic last year, the Media and Comms Team were able to stream the service for everyone to participate in remembering the fallen. This year though Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders were able to fill St Mark's Church and participate in the service face-to-face.
Remembrance Sunday saw a number of commemorations taking place with Scout Groups across the District taking to the streets for parades, and gathering at local War Memorials, below are a selection of photos from Remembrance Sunday across Central Notts.
On Sunday 21st November Scouts from across Central Notts joined the Mayor of Gedling, and other dignitaries for the Mapperley Top Remembrance Parade.
