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 GREEN readiness level meaning only limited formal restrictions apply to our activities.

We are still required to consider all risks associated with Covid and to mitigate these as appropriate, but we are looking forward to conducting a busy scouting programme this Autumn.

Meeting Times

Meeting times are subject to occasional amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery.
