Peace Light from Bethlehem
THERE WILL BE NO PEACE LIGHT THIS YEAR, 2020, DUE TO THE DIFFICULTIES IN TRAVELLING AND MEETING THROUGHOUT EUROPE AND ESPECIALLY IN TRANSPORTING THE LKIGHT ACROSS THE CHANEL TO THE UK.
2019 PEACE LIGHT. On 15th December 2019 four members along with a D.S.S.A.S. member travelled to Calais where we undertook some retail therapy and too refreshments before travelling on to St. Omer Cathedral. There we wee welcomed by members of the French Scouts, the clergy and congregation at their Peace Light Service. We collected a Light from the service and returned to Calais where we found the sailings we delayed by about 45 minutes due to adverse weather. We arrived somewhat late back in Dover having been well cared for by P & O. The Light then started its' journey onward around the British Isles and beyond.
