Remembrance Service and Parade

On Sunday 9th November we will join the Churches and other Organisations in Cheadle for our Remembrance Day Parade and Service at the Cenotaph on Cheadle Green.

This is one of the few occasions when our entire Scout Group comes together and the event is watched by many hundreds of Cheadle people. We hope you will make every effort to join us, to mark your respects and also show everyone that Scouting is alive and flourishing in Cheadle.

We all meet at Massie Street car park, Cheadle at 10.20am on Sunday 9th November and ask that all members come smartly dressed in full uniform, so please ensure you wear warm items of clothing under your shirts or jumpers. School trousers and cleaned polished shoes, not trainers please.

The whole parade will form up on the car park and leave, led by a band at 10.45am walking down Massie Street to Cheadle High Street, then onto the Cenotaph. St Marys Parish Church will join the parade at the Massie Street/Cheadle High Street junction. The congregation of St Cuthberts and St Chads Churches on Stockport Road will also be joining the event. They will walk from their Churches to meet the main parade in time as it reaches the Cenotaph. If you would like to join St Marys, Trinity Church, St Chads or St Cuthberts Church services prior to the parade then you are most welcome to do so.

During the service, members will have the opportunity to place their poppies down if they wish. Poppies can be placed down in a row of planter boxes, which will be placed on the grassed area in front of the band. Please follow the direction of your section leaders. As the service ends, the parade will move off and pass a saluting base by the pelican crossing in the High Street. We expect to be back in Massie Street car park and dismissed for around 11.30am.

Trinity Church welcomes us all in for complimentary tea, coffee, squash and biscuits after the parade in the Church Hall.

disco4On Saturday 1st March, Discovery Explorers joined up with a team from the Abney Scout & Guide Centre to complete the Environment Partnership Award. They were also joined by Explorers and leaders from Pheonix and Nomads Units from Cheadle & District.

A good productive day was had clearing fallen trees from the two fields, laying hedges, cutting down diseased trees and planting lots of new shrubs and bushes.

The grounds certainly look a lot tidier and the main fields are ready and waiting for the spring and Ram Roast.

Well done to all who participated.
