St. Georges Day Parade

Posted on April 25th, 2013 by Site Administrator

Last Sunday we had our annual St. Georges Day parade in Barnstaple.  The Group only takes part in two parades a year, St. Georges and Remembrance Day – andI am pleased to say that we had a good turn out for this one.  Approximately 50% of the Group participated in the parade – our Scouts, Cubs and Beavers looking very smart and making the Group proud.  Every Group in North Devon was represented, with some special VIP guests including various Mayor’s and representatives from the Police.  In total there were about 500 people present and there was standing room only in the church.  Special mentions at the ceremony included the Cubs who attended our recent camp, they were asked to come up to the front and collect a special woggle made by our District Commissioner (Andy Ellis) and also to Roy Imeson who has attained the 5 year service award for the Group.
