Remembrance Challenge

Date: 23rd Oct 2020 Author: Chelmsford Scouts

Background:
Armistice Day is on 11th November. Also known as Remembrance Day, this annual day of remembrance marks the end of the First World War and a 2 minute silence is held to remember those who have died in wars.

Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday of November. Nationally, ceremonies are held at war memorials, cenotaphs and religious buildings to invite the community to take part in acts of Remembrance.

Remembrance Day events are important community events, and most community organisations, such as the Scouts, will be traditionally involved.


The Challenge

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to take part in remembrance parades this year. However, our Co-District Commissioners (Leanne Oscroft and Suzanne Ball) have come up with a challenge for you to complete from the comfort of your own home!

The challenge is to create your own remembrance day display. You can make the display as big or as small as you wish. If it is possible, we are asking that you make the display visible from outside of your home. This could be through the window or even on your front garden, but don’t worry if that isn’t possible!

There are no rules or guidance to this challenge, so it is completely up to you and your imagination as to what your display looks like!

Please email a picture of your completed display to communications@chelmsfordscouts.org.uk 

Competition entries close at 10am on 10th November 2020  

Good luck!
