St George’s Day Parade – 26 AprilPosted: April 27, 2015
There are three Scouts districts that cover Three Rivers – Chorleywood & Rickmansworth, Watford North , Watford South. Yvonne and I attended the Watford North Scout District annual St. Georges Day Parade and Service. The service was held at Christ Church, St. Albans Road, Watford.
Watford North has groups in three Districts or Boroughs – Watford , Three Rivers and St. Albans. The Bricket Wood Group is St. Albans. The Three Rivers Groups were Abbots Langley and Langleybury.
The Service had been organised by the Langleybury Group. They had many Beavers , Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Network involved. The presenting and giving back of all the flags was very efficient.
After the service the Parade went up the St. Albans Road. After the march past, we then inspected all the groups.
The Police on duty were specials so, like the Scout Leaders, all volunteers. The weather was better than forecast.
I have seen many St. Georges Day Parades, the only one which was more memorable was the time I was a Queen’s Scout and we paraded at Windsor Castle and a service in St. Georges Chapel.
Well done to all the organisers. It was standing room only for some of the parents. A well-attended , well organised and extremely well executed event.
