Please join us for a family-friendly Remembrance Sunday ceremony

7th Bristol Scouts, Cubs and Beavers will be joining with local Guides, Brownies and Rainbows together with members of the local community and Royal British Legion and for a short ceremony to mark Remembrance Sunday on 11th November.

The service takes place by the War Memorial at the end of Birdcage Walk at the site of the former St. Andrew’s church. A map of the location is below.

We invite everyone to join us from 1:00pm at our Scout HQ, Pavey House on Waterloo Street in Clifton Village where there will be tea, coffee and bacon rolls (served inside). From there everyone will congregate at around 1:40pm to parade down to the War Memorial (~10 minute walk) ready for the ceremony start at

All are very welcome.

Important information for 7th Bristol members:

Please try to make every effort to attend as it’s a really great local event to support and to remember those who gave so much so that we enjoy our lives today.

All members of 7th Bristol (young people, leaders, parents and family) are requested to meet at the Scout HQ, Pavey House, promptly at 1:00pm as we will be taking our annual Group photograph. It is important that your Beavers, Cubs and Scouts attend as this helps document their scouting experience and our history as a Group (one of the oldest – if not the very oldest –in Bristol) and is an interesting snapshot of social history. Have a look at the three photos at the end from the 1940s, 1950s and last year.

Please feel free to invite any friends and family. They are very welcome to join us from 1:00pm at Pavey House and be part of the memorial service.

Please note that this is not a “drop off” event and a parent or guardian will need to attend unless you have made special arrangements with your Leaders.

At approximately 1:40pm we will assemble outside Pavey House and walk in procession with our respective section flags to the War Memorial in plenty of time for the ceremony. The service starts at 2pm and is short – around 20 mins – finished by 2.30pm at the latest.

We will NOT be returning to Pavey House as it is anticipated that you will depart immediately following the service with your children, unless you have made special alternative arrangements with your Leaders.

Please can everyone attend looking smart in full uniform, neatly folded scarf, woggle, dark coloured school type trousers (no jeans) and smart shoes (no trainers). Get your recent badges sewn or glued on! If possible, please wear a poppy too.

Young people who are not yet invested (i.e. no scarf, woggle or badges) should attend wearing their shirts/jumpers.

The ceremony will take place whatever the weather so please come prepared!

Please note: there will be NO PARKING available in the spaces immediately in front of Pavey House due to the Group photo and anticipated number of participants.
