Remembrance Poppies


Due to Government restrictions, members of the Thames Ditton Scout Groups and Girl Guide Groups were unable to participate in their annual Remembrance Day parade and service on Giggs Hill Green this year. To make up for their absence, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders of The Dittons Scout Group created their own poppies from card, cellophane, felt, wood, some knitted, some knotted but all handcrafted. Jackie Bourne and Tony Butcher, Scout Leaders of the Wednesday Troop, constructed a cascading garland with the poppies and attached it to the War Memorial in readiness for Remembrance Sunday.
