Remembrance Day Parade
To all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and leaders who took part in the recent Remembrance Day Parade, Thank You for your respectful presence at the centenary of Armistice Day.
This year was perhaps one of the biggest parades I have seen in Hornchurch and it was great that the Group was so well represented.
My thanks to Michael Henry (Scout) who laid the wreath with all due respect and to Adam Snell who paraded the Group colours.

Harry Potter Quiz
On Saturday, we held our Harry Potter Quiz at HQ in memorial of Donna Bresslaw, who was sadly taken from us too soon just a year ago. The quiz was to raise important funds for The British Heart Foundation and St Francis Hospice – charities chosen by Jack, Molly and Lucy (Donna’s children).
The afternoon started at 1pm with some outdoor games run by the Explorers and refreshments including Butterbeer! The quiz took place in the hall, which was wonderfully decorated by Essie Jay. The quiz included 10 rounds and a picture round all based on Harry Potter. Questions ranged from Harry himself to Hogwarts to Beasts, Potions, Spells, Quidditch and some of the other characters.
The winners were Honey Dew with 118 points and they took home the “Smarties” – see what we did there!
The losers were We don’t know who lived up to their name and took home the Lemons!
Everyone had a fabulous afternoon and we raised a massive £320 which will be split equally between both charities.
The Fundraising Committee would like to thank quizmaster, Mick, everyone for coming, those that donated prizes and/or time and the leaders for circulating the details of the quiz for us.
We look forward to the next event!
