The second Sunday in November is traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women.
Batchworth Sea Scouts are usually at the memorial in the grounds of St Mary’s Church. Being Royal Navy recognised we have pride of place at the ceremony and ALL members of all ages are encouraged to attend.
It is an important day in our calendar and is especially important to members past and present. Attendance from all in full uniform is expected from everyone.
In 2020, Batchworth were invited to volunteer one representative to lay a wreath at a socially distanced memorial. Youth members were asked to reflect on the significance of day from home.
