Potters Bar Scouts accompany the Viernheim Scouts to collect the Peacelight
On December the 16th the Viernheim Scouts went to Mainz as usual to collect the Peacelight in the Cathedral. Late in the morning 20 Scouts left Viernheim. With them were a group of five from Potters Bar, who, among other things, came to experience the Viernheim Christmas market and and also to come along for the Peacelight.
After a short time an the Mainz Christmas market the group attended the service which ends with the tradition of giving out the Peacelight to all present and then to leave the Cathedral in procession to the square from where the Scouts were send to take the light home to their towns and parishes.
It was great to meet up with our Town Twin Scout Group in Germany and cannot wait to welcome them to Potters Bar in 2019.
