We Will Remember Them

Date: 8th Nov 2020 Author: Sal Dartnell

Even though we haven’t been able to come together and mark Remembrance Sunday as we normally do in our communities, we still remember them across the Horsham District.

Hari Hall, a scout from 2nd Southwater made this wreath which she placed on the memorial in Southwater at 11am on Sunday on behalf of the Group. 

Numerous local scouting leaders and young people marked Remembrance Sunday on their doorsteps with their families with some encouraging neighbours to do the same, some even reading poems or playing the Last Post.

Others have chosen to Remember as part of their Group programme.  1st Southwater Group are holding an online Remembrance Day service on Wed 11th November with readings and a shared two minutes silence.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
