The 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th November 2018 marks 100 years since the end of WW1, when a treaty was signed on Armistice Day. 1st Lightwater Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are learning what it was like by digging a replica World War 1 trench at our HQ. We started in June 2018 and aim to finish in time for Remembrance Day. Its a tough dig! But that helps us remember what our soldiers went through and leads us to discuss the importance of remembering all wars. We will update this page with progress as the year continues…
