1st Flintham Scout Group were invited to take part in the Remembrance Service at Screveton Church on Sunday 12th November.
There was a good turnout of Cubs, Scouts and a few Explorers. At the service the section flags were paraded up the aisle to be placed at the altar. During the service Freya (Explorer) gave a reading and Demi-Louise & Finlay (Scouts) collected the collection from the congregation. A wreath was also laid by a Cub Scout Leader after the 2 minutes silence.
There was also enthusiastic participation by the Cubs during the vicar’s address, which was nicely aimed at the youngest in the congregation.
After the service a parade, led by the Group flags, from the church to the Screveton War Memorial. Here small named crosses were placed for each of the 11 airman that died in a mid-air collision in April 1944, together with other small crosses.
After this short ceremony, it was back to the church for some much needed refreshments and drinks.
