SCOUTS SIGN UP TO THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

SCOUTS SIGN UP TO THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

The Scouts showed their support by joining in with Armed Forces Day at Denton as they are now partners with all the veterans and have signed up with their covenant.

The Scouts attended with their PR trailer and climbing wall run by One Adventure and an archery stand at the activity centre based on the market outside Victoria Park where all the stands were with the bands.

Many young people took part climbing the wall but sadly no older veterans had ago.

Previously 3rd Ashton Scouts started the Peace Bell 2018 project with their Leader, Sarah Pevers and Assistant, Eric Dundavan, have created a Remembrance Plot in the grounds of St James Church in Ashton.

The Scouts planted seeds from the Royal British Legion which have been sourced from the Fields of Flanders.

The Remembrance Plot is to honour the fallen of the parish of St Michael’s but also all others who went forth to do their Duty to their Country and didn’t return home.

The plot will be maintained through the year and the Peace Bell Project will finish on Scouts Remembrance Sunday 11th November 2018.

Group Scout Leader, Tina Howarth, thanked the Scouts and Derek Casey for installing the poppy plot to remind everyone about all those who never came home.
