News and Events

This weekend Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders from across the District will join with their communities in the commemorations for the fallen of the many conflicts past and present.

As we remember, let us also have in the forefront of our minds the tens of thousands of Scouts who served in both World Wars. Many Scouts served on the fighting fronts, alongside many more who carried out vital functions at home. There were Scout coast watchers, Scout messengers, Scout first aiders. Scout Leaders served in the Scout International Relief Service during the last few months of the Second World War, bringing aid and comfort to displaced persons, refugees and survivors of the concentration camps. They did so, knowing that they were using sticking plasters to try to heal deep wounds but as one member said, "we can't do much but itís better than doing nothing".
