Scouts & Scouts+
In order to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 the Scouts of Bicester Town are making Remembrance Crosses. They will be displayed behind St Edburg’s Church for the duration of the Remembrance weekend.
There are 103 names on the Bicester WW1 Memorial Stone and we plan for the Scouts to make the crosses themselves – there will be one for each serviceman that died.
We are inviting Scouts who would like to be involved in the project to attend a drop in workshop where they can make a cross and choose the name of the Serviceman they would like to honour. We are asking for a small contribution of £1 towards the cost of the materials. The Scouts will be able to keep their cross which measure 80cm x 40cm the same dimensions as a Commonwealth headstone.
Friday 26th October
Anytime between 2.00pm & 4.00pm
Saturday 27th October
Anytime between 9.00am & 12.00pm
1st Bicester have kindly offered for us to use their Scout HQ – Ashdene Road,
