St. Georges Day Parade

St Georges 19 sml
Sunday 28th April 2019 at 10.00am
Manor Park, Throwley Way, Sutton

St. George is the Patron Saint of Scouting and each year Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers from all over the British Isles gather in their Counties and Districts to take part in Parades and Services to celebrate Scouting’s National Day.

This year’s St Georges Day Parade and Promise Renewal will take place

  • At: 10.00am on Sunday 28th April
  • Manor Park, Throwley Way, Sutton
    (look out for our Group Flags).
  • Parade will move off promptly at 10:30am.
  • Followed by a short service (about 20min),
    presented by the scouts followed by all Sections renewing their promise.

Full Uniform must be worn, including navy trousers and black school shoes. We would also suggest that everyone, just in case of inclement weather, brings a coat.

This Parade is only one of two opportunities we have during the year to show that Scouting is alive and well in Sutton and I do urge all members of our Group to attend this important national event.

As parents/guardians, you may attend the ceremony and accompany the Parade, although not walking within the Parade itself.

We, the leaders, look forward to meeting you all there.
