St George’s Day Parade 2014

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers from 1st Woosehill Scouts joined together to mark St George’s Day at St Paul’s Church, Wokingham on Sunday 27 April. Flag parties from each section gathered outside the church before marching up the aisle for a service led by Fr Richard Lamey. Having retold the story of St George (who is also the patron saint of the Scout Association) with some willing volunteers from the congregation a representative from each section joined their Leader to retake their Scouting promise. The youngsters then braved the rain to parade their flags back to the Scout Hut in Chestnut Avenue where a well-deserved drink and snack awaited them.
