What's on

Sunday 11th November 2018, 2.30pm

Remembrance Day Parade and Civic Service

St Mary's Church, Thornbury

There is the traditional Remembrance Sunday service at 2.30 at St Mary's Church, followed by the parade up the High Street.

A group of young people from the Third Thornbury Scouts will be proudly pushing the wheelchairs of local care home residents in the Thornbury Remembrance Day Parade, paying tribute to our fallen heroes.

The Scouts have been paired up with older people from Beech House care home through local charity Alive’s project, called ‘Making Pals’. Alive is the UK’s leading charity enriching the lives of older people in care and training their carers.

Making Pals is a project that connects care home residents to their local community. By encouraging the public to engage with care homes and by empowering care home residents, the project hopes to change the public’s perceptions of care homes so that they are truly seen as part of the local community.

The Scouts are befriending older people to gain their Chief Gold Scout award, which is certainly a worthwhile way to earn this coveted badge. It looks set to be the start of a blossoming friendship, as the Scouts will be visiting the residents monthly to take part in fun activities and cement firm friendships.
