The Youth of Tattenhall Remember.

Home » News » Tattenhall Youth Remember

On Remembrance Sunday the Youth of Tattenhall remembered those who had died for their country.

Almost 80 Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts were present at St Alban's and at the War Memorial in Tattenhall, together with 8 adult leaders. A further 39 Beaver Scouts paid their respects at Bickerton Church. David Lithgow Smith, the Scout Leader explained "Remembrance Sunday is always an important part of our programme. Duty and respect are key Scouting values and although much of our programme involves fun, adventure and excitement we feel it is important to remind ourselves of the sacrifices made by so many people, not just the armed services, which made this possible."

Cadets in Chester

Following a service at Chester Cathedral, six young Combined Cadet Force cadets from Tattenhall took part in the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial outside the Cathedral. They then took part in a military parade though the city centre streets, watched by applauding spectators, finishing outside the Town Hall. One Army Cadet commented, "I felt really proud wearing my uniform and my poppy, especially when I saw the veterans there and the hundreds of people who had come to pay their respects."
