Each year all sections of the Group join together to attend the Family Remembrance Day Service in the Methodist Church. We meet in the Methodist Hall at 10:35 am for the 10:45 am service. Parents are very welcome to attend. There will be a collection during the service. After the service, we walk down to St Edburg’s Church, where we join the Town Parade. The parade leaves St Edburg’s at about 12:00. We then march around the Market Square and return to the Causeway where the parade will be dismissed. Please collect your child from outside St Edburg’s at about 12.20.
All members need to be in full smart uniform. This includes black school shoes (if possible) and dark school/scout trousers or a formal style navy blue or black skirt – no jeans, leggings or jogging bottoms, please. The weather can be very cold, especially while we are waiting outside St Edburgs for the parade to start, so the children may bring coats. If it is dry, we will parade without coats (the children can carry them) so please wear something warm underneath the uniform top. Scouts may wear their navy 7th Bicester fleece with the Scout shirt (not the polo shirt). We only parade twice a year so we would like all our members to try and attend. If you need to drop your child off earlier or pick up slightly later, please email and we will see if we can accommodate this.
