More seats had to brought into the hall to accommodate all those who wanted to be part of the first church parade of the corps’ new scouts.
The 1st Hadleigh Scouts, Cubs and Beavers have taken up residence at the Temple having previously met at another church in the town. Their first church parade was on 2 November. It included the renewal of promise for each of the three sections and the presentation of the Salvation Army scouts affiliation badge. The group remains self-contained and is not run by The Salvation Army but are recognised as affiliated with the Army. ‘It is important that we make these young people and their leaders welcome as part of the wider corps family’ said Major David Woodman.
The service was conducted by Major Geoff Ashdown.
