Lest We Forget –
Sunday 10th November 2019 is Remembrance Sunday and the date of our annual remembrance parade alongside the Bolsover community.
This event is generally considered compulsory for all 4th Bolsover Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
We believe this an important event as it gives 4th Bolsover Scout Group the opportunity to give their respect to all those that have been, or are still involved in, conflicts around the world.
