Scouts pay their respects

To do their bit for remembrance, the 1st Middleton-on-Sea Scout Group paraded through their village.


The group walked from their HQ to the village where they laid wreaths and held their Scouts Own service to commemorate and remember those who have died in conflicts since World War I.


Group chairman Roger Belton said: “After a short service of readings in the Scout HQ, the sun shone on our group and their families as we paraded with flags flying through Middleton-on-Sea.


Scouts, Cubs and Beavers were very well turned out in their uniform best.


“A representative from each section carried a poppy wreath and laid it solemnly while everyone quietly paid appropriate tribute and respect to the memory of those who gave their lives, that we might have freedom.”


Roger led the parade of more than 30 beavers on Sunday.
