The Group holds a parade service on the third Sunday of most months, where we march through Old Leigh to The Fishermen’s Chapel (New Road Church) at the other end of the Old Town, which whom we have had a very long association.
In June and December we invite the congregation from New Road to The Den for the service, combining with our summer open day and Christmas toy & carol service.
We meet at The Den at 10:30 in full uniform, and are normally finished by 12:15. Family and friends are welcome to join us in the chapel for the service. All sections are welcome to attend, and it counts towards several challenge & activity badges.
