For one reason and another neither Em or I could take our Guides to the Remembrance Service this year, so we did our own small Act of Remembrance at Guides. Last week we sent home a sheet with 7 circles on it and asked the Guides to attach a coin of any denomination to each circle when the did a good turn and we would donate the money to the Poppy Appeal. We collected them in last night and we have raised over £40.00. As we meet in an old Methodist Sunday School, there are two memorials on the walls to men who lost their lives in the two world wars, so last night after a short talk about the poppy, how and why it is made and what it means, we sang the National Anthem and Taps and then the Guides wrote short messages of thanks and respect on their poppies and stuck them to paper underneath the memorials.
Em and I are very proud of our Guides today.
