We are deeply saddened by the loss of HM Queen Elizabeth II. All of us at 1st Ripley Scouts are mourning the loss of our beloved monarch and Patron, HM The Queen. Her outstanding example of service, encouragement and kindness was an inspiration to us all. We join the rest of the nation, and our movement in remembering her 70 years of glorious service.

Our Scouts an new Explorer Unit were camping last night and held a two minute silence on Saturday 10th September by candlelight followed by a poem read by one of our Scouts.

Our flags will be at half mast until the 20th September as a mark of respect to Her Majesty. All of our young people will also be receiving a badge of remembrance to remember our Patron.
