Every year St. Chads Scouts join the St. Heliers ANZAC Day morning parade.
In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow . . .

ANZAC DAY 2020 - due to COVID 19 L4 lockdown, the St. Heliers' ANZAC Day morning parade was cancelled. Instead, we each held our own individual memorial service at sunrise in our driveways or special places.
