We are approximately half way through the parade (35/75) so may have the opportunity to watch the remaining floats after we have finished.

When the parade will finish is anyone's guess.  The best estimate is about 11pm.  Your team leader will phone you to let you know when we are ready.

We will return to our spot on Adelphi Street to be collected
Please make sure your child's team leader knows who will be collecting them and that you have collected them.

To make sure we stand out at night, we will have glow sticks, glow balloons and all members will be wearing a fluorescent scout neckie.

Adults may choose to wear uniform, scouting hoodies, team costume or outdoor type clothes.

Young people will be walking in teams as different scouting activities/badges.  Your team leader will be in touch soon with more info.  Please make sure you have something suitable in good time

Information meetings/workshops will be held on Thursdays 23rd and 30th August.
