Remembrance Parade 2008

On Sunday 9th November the Scout groups of Didsbury 88th Manchester, 2/241st Manchester and 306th Manchester met at 88th Manchester HQ for this year’s Remembrance Day Parade. This year we were also joined by other Scout groups from our district, 2/249th Manchester, St Wilfred’s and the leaders from 23rd Manchester.

The parade this year was the largest contingency of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network and leaders! A quick look outside saw a break in the weather with the sun shining, the order was coats off and assemble outside, moans were heard all around the scout hut.

The Parade set off at 10:35am and headed towards the war memorial to join the members of the public and the congregations of St James and Emmanuel churches. After a short service the wreaths were laid, this year 306th Manchester laid the wreath on behalf of the Scouts from Manchester South District. After parading back to the Scout Hut the parade was dismissed and everyone race to get inside the Scout hut to grab their coats and get warm.

I would like to thank all the leaders who turned out for the Remembrance Parade and pass on our thanks to all your Beavers, Cubs and Scouts that attended.
