Remembrance 2015

Lest We Forget

Around the District, Beavers, Cubs Scouts and Explorers, along with many others around the county spent some time on Sunday morning paying their respects to those who lost their lives during conflict.

Over thirty Cheltenham Explorers were on parade at the Cheltenham service on the Promenade. They gave out programmes go the public, joined in the parade and laid the District’s wreath. They all looked very smart with immaculate uniforms and shiny shoes!

We were also invited to send seven Explorer to the town hall in the evening. They gave out programmes, escorted VIPs, and joined in the parade with our flag. Two Explorers read a poem during the service and even got the chance to talk to the Lord Lieutenant and Alex Chalk (MP for Cheltenham) afterwards.

If you joined in a Remembrance Service and have helped the Royal British Legion with fundraising you are well on your way to gaining the Poppy Badge. More information →
