Feltham cub scouts braved torrential downpours to take part in a war memorial walk on Saturday (9), ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

A dozen cubs from the 7th Feltham sea scouts group along with four leaders placed poppies at Bedfont, Feltham and Hanworth war memorials, in memory of the fallen soldiers since the start of the First World War.

Sporting raincoats and hats they set off on the H26 bus from Feltham to Bedfont war memorial where a giant poppy was laid down before they marched through the old gravel pits and under the railway to Tesco in Feltham to take cover in a trolley shelter as the rain came down heavily.

 

Despite the heavy rain, they continued their walk to Feltham war memorial where another large poppy was placed, and then ventured into Feltham library to have a look at the war memorial exhibition.

On the final leg of their journey to Hanworth they were forced to take the bus as showers continued.

Once they had laid down the last of their jumbo poppies it was back on the H25 bus to Feltham and a walk through Ludlow Park and back to the scout hut for a sleepover.

The children then tucked into warm pizzas and watched The Smurfs movie.
