Scouts St.George's Day Parade

Our Scout group isn't linked to a church, so we don't get to do the various parades that I remember doing years and years ago as a Brownie, and I admit I am a bit sad about that. I remember feeling pride in being part of a parade, wearing full uniform and carrying our group's flag (although I never got to carry it myself).

So when we got a letter on Monday about the St. George's Day Parade today I was thrilled! Obviously St. George's Day itself has been and gone on Thursday but this is the nearest Sunday so it was all done for today.

The whole of the Lonsdale District met up by the Town Hall in Morecambe and then marched to The Winter Gardens, where some of the older Scouts / Leaders had organised a show explaining the story of St. George (with volunteers from the audience and much pantomime style fun) and why St. George is so important to the Scouting movement... He is the Patron Saint of Scouting! News to me! It was loads of fun, it was just a shame there seemed to be a problem with the sound system because there were chunks of it which those of us stood at the back (parents etc) miss completely.

After the show we trooped down the prom a little way to the area by the Midland Hotel where there where loads of activities laid on for the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, and the general public! Everything from sitting in canoes and trying rowing machines, to crawling to fake caves and potholes, to wresting in padded suits. It was fab! Jack and his buddy Luke loved the caves and wrestling best!

Miles better than my church parades with the Brownies!
