Community Procession

Posted by Andrew Hobson Thursday, 2 August 2012
** Important:- Meeting times updated.** 

The community procession is on Friday 7th September.  For most schools this is a school day and you will need to arrange with your child's headteacher for them to be out of school on this day.  The county council have confirmed that schools may mark children as "present at approved educational activity" rather than absent, so this will not affect their attendance record.  


Some Scouts will be on the float and others will be walking behind.  We will contact you individually to let you know your role.  Here is some important information:
