Scout Memorial Unveiling

Memorial ProjectMay 2016
The main item that we are now trying to promote is that we will broadcast the ceremony live to a big screen on the nearby Navy Field at the Arboretum. This is a space open to all and does not require any ticket or pre-booking. Everyone in this area will also have the opportunity to visit the Scout Memorial later in the afternoon.

Would you mind sharing this message and the attached document with your members so as many people as possible are aware that they can join in with this very special Scouting day.

I’ve attached the flyer and (if they wish to come) the Event Briefing Document so they are aware of the details (see below to download).

We are thrilled to share the news that applications are now open for tickets to the memorial unveiling ceremony on Sunday 5th June 2016 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire (DE13 7AR).

If you wish to apply for tickets please follow the link:  and submit your application by Monday 11th April 2016.

We would be very grateful if you could please share this information with your other Scouting colleagues. You are our best route to ensure that everyone who wants to support the memorial and join us on 5th June has the chance to do so.

The memorial will remember all members of Scouting past and present. From our youngest beaver scout to our oldest leader, those who have given service within Scouting and those members who have given wider service to their community or country. 

The project was started in 2009 by 5 Explorer Scouts from Birmingham and has since been supported by over 200,000 Scouting members across the world. 

I have attached images of some of the finished pieces that will go on the memorial and in the surrounding woods, so you can see the progress we have made. To find out more about the design concept and the build progress to date please visit our website or like our Facebook page  to receive ongoing updates.

The support that we have had towards The Scout Memorial Project continues to be nothing short of inspirational, so thank you the help you have given to make this idea become a reality.

Many thanks,
