Remembrance Sunday

rem sunday

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.

Due to the current circumstances, all future events are postponed until further notice.

Covid-19 and Scouting

Batchworth Sea Scouts follows the advice of The Scout Association in relation to the safe delivery of Scouting, who in turn work with The National Youth Agency to translate Government advice into governance rules.  They have implemented a tiered Readiness Level, controlling the type of activities that can be delivered based on local conditions.

We are currently at Yellow readiness level allowing group sessions where precautions and social distancing are implemented, including small overnight expeditions.  We expect further changes in the coming months as the national picture evolves.

Leaders continue to work with parents to deliver the best scouting experience possible, whilst conforming to the current Readiness Level restrictions.

Thank you to everyone for your support in these times and please contact us with ideas, suggestions and requests.

Meeting Times

Currently, meeting times are subject to amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery within Covid restrictions.
