Hi Everyone

To mark the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli 4th Kew Scouts have been invited to be involved in a following events.

19th April - 2pm meet at Kew RSL in full uniform and march with our veterans down Cotham rd and High St.

20th April - Cubs to meet at Kew RSL and receive a tour and hear some war stories


24th April - Cubs sleepover at hall to prepare for the dawn service. Venturers to visit

25th April - Anzac Day Dawn Service at Surrey Gardens.  The cubs will be handing out rosemary sprigs/ laying a reef and involved in the commemorative Gallipoli Oak Tree planting.  

It would be amazing if we could get all 4th Kew members and family to attend the 19th April march in Kew and also the dawn service at Surrey Gardens.  Full uniform will be required.
