There are very few words that can fully justify this momentous occasion, where we reflected on all those who sacrificed so much for our freedom and commemorated 100 years since the signing of the Armistice Treaty at the end of WW1.
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, Scouts and Explorers are learning what it was like by digging a replica World War 1 trench at our HQ. We started in June 2018 and finished in time for Remembrance Day, opening the gates to all the community on Sunday 11th November 3-6pm. 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.
2018 is the year ‘The Greatest Showman’ came to Lightwater! A circus tent, complete with billboards, bunting, bulb lit signage, a human cannon and a tiger in a cage. Amazing when you think the field is completely clear at 8am the morning of the event – yes, its all built in a day thanks to a wonderful team of local volunteers.
1st Lightwater AGM will take place on Wednesday 17th Oct at 19:45 for a 20:00 start.
This is a short meeting with nibbles afterwards. The meeting provides an idea opportunity to see how the group is doing and meet with the leaders that look after your children every week.
