1st New Romney Scout Group Celebrate VE Day
‘To those who gave so much - we thank you’ the Nation’s Toast, was the theme of the 1st New Romney Scout Group commemorations and celebrations.
The group organised banners around the town; decorated the WW2 bench they donated to the town of New Romney in 2017; organised The Great New Romney Bake Off; dressed as wartime evacuees, complete with Gas Mask carrier; sang wartime songs; decorated their homes with wreaths and bunting; cooked wartime recipes including carrot scones, bread pudding, bara brith and decorated cakes and biscuits.
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders raised a glass in Toast to the Nation at 3pm. Although it was a very different celebration it was fun and we are very proud to have marked the day and the achievements of our Wartime heroes, we are truly proud of them and all they did for us. Thank you
