Local Scout groups hold annual St Georges Day Parade

24th April 2022

Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts groups from across the North West held their annual St Georges Day Parade in Southport today.

Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout Association, choose St George to be the movement’s Patron Saint because he felt the qualities of the legendary Roman soldier were the same qualities that reflect a good Scout.

The group marched from Princes Park to the Promenade and back, where they renewed their Scout Promise.

The Scout Association, formed in 1910, provides activities for nearly half a million young people in the UK.
