Scouts take part in First World War activities
7:40am Sunday 18th May 2014 in News
SCOUTS, Cubs and Beavers in Areley Kings have been learning about life in the First World War to mark the centenary since it began.
The groups were visited by re-enactor John Sewell who spoke to them about life as a soldier and have been encouraged to research their family history to find out what members of their families did during the war.
Their research, which will be aided by a session at Stourport Library, will form a travelling exhibition for Scout huts and libraries.
A replica trench is also going to be built at Rhydd Covert campsite where re-enactors will camp during a heritage weekend in September to demonstrate the workings of the trench system. A tethered hot air balloon will help groups of youngsters to see the system from above.
