St George's Day

Posted by Andrew Hobson Thursday, 19 April 2012

As well as being the patron saint of England, Saint George is also the patron saint of Scouting and so every year scouts across the country mark the occasion of St Georges Day.

On Sunday (22nd April) – St Georges Day Parade
This is the one occasion of the year when all Scouts in the District parade together and:
Everyone is expected to attend

Please ensure that your uniform is of the highest standard, with:

  • New Badges - sewn on your uniform (especially the membership badges). It would be great to see everyone wearing their new badges (Preston Guild, Project Peru and Diamond Jubilee)
  • Old Badges - removed (Preston Cen)
  • Neckerchiefs - washed, ironed, nicely rolled, with a woggle.
  • Scout trousers (or school trousers if you do not have any)
  • School shoes (no trainers)

On the day…
Mrs Gardner has kindly agreed that St Anthony’s pupils may wear their Beaver, Cub or Scout uniform to school on Monday 23rd April.

Following on from this, if anyone should express an interest in Scouting, we do have spaces available, please speak to the section leaders or myself. There is also a recruiter badge available for young people bringing along a friend who goes on to be invested.
