Remembrance Day Parade 2011


This parade is generally considered compulsory for Twyford Cubs & Scouts, and in fact we always do get a good turn out for what has become something of a village showpiece and which features in the local papers. Last year was a particularly good turnout – let us do even better this year, so please try to ensure that your son or daughter is present. Full uniform is required, including scout trousers (or school trousers if you don’t yet have uniform trousers, but not jeans or tracksuit bottoms), and without jackets or coats unless the weather is particularly bad. Thus it is appropriate for youngsters to wear something warm under their uniform.  If it is raining, we will supply lightweight, clear plastic ponchos for the younger children.  Once again there is quite a sizeable band to lead the Group, together with the Guides and Brownies. And for the first time, Beavers are invited to join the parade.  Twyford Parish Council are funding the band on behalf of the village uniformed organisations and the Royal British Legion.   

Timings :  Assemble 0950 at the latest  at The HQ ready to move off at 1005.  

The Route  This year is once again along London Road, turning right into Sycamore Drive and on into Hermitage.  Left on reaching the Wargrave Road, where there will be a brief halt by the Bowling  Club for Legion and Parish Council members to fall in, then over the traffic lights to the church.  The return trip will be all along London Road, but without the band, arriving back at about 1145.

Our own marshals supervise the march, together with any police assistance which is available.
