Croydon Scouting

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

I just wanted to make this post and thank all Scout Groups and Explorer Units who supported the various act of Remembrance held on Sunday 10th November right across the Borough of Croydon.

We had Church sponsored Groups joining in their local Parish services and several Groups and Units collabating for larger scale outdoor events in Woodcote, Sanderstead, Limpsfield, Purley, Old Coulsdon and Crystal Palace as well in the centre of Croydon for the Civic Service of Remembrance held at the Fairfield Halls with the wreath laying ceremony outside the War Memorial in Katherine Street.

This weekend we also saw the GLSW Eurojam contingent (including youth and adult members from Croydon) taking a poignant trip to Ypres, Belgium. Members had the honour of taking part in the last post at the Menin Gate, and made time for humbling visits to just some of the 100 British and Commonwealth War Cemeteries in Belgium.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
We will remember them.

(Extract from poem 'For the Fallen' by Laurence Binyon)
