Dear Parents

St George’s Day Parade – Sunday 23rd April 2023
This is the most important date in the Scouting calendar, a time when all sections and all groups parade together as Orwell District Scouts.

I would hope that all sections will be well represented, and in full and correct uniform, please. Navy/black trousers and the correct core uniform for your section, and our group’s emerald, green scarf, which ideally needs to be ironed, then correctly rolled to give us all as a group, a Smart Appearance. Every child of each section reaffirms their scout promise.

This is only one Sunday afternoon in a year!

All sections of the Group will meet @ Garrison Lane Car Park no later than 1:35pm. We will then walk to the first floodgate beyond the Leisure Centre, where we will form up our group, ready to parade with attending groups to the Spa Pavilion.

The service starts at approximately 3pm, you are very welcome as parents to watch the parade.

Please be at the Spa Pavilion at around 4:30 pm ready to collect your child.

Leadership Team

Please put on your calendar. I am hoping for full attendance from all sections.
