St.Georges Day Celebration 2012

Hundreds of youngsters from scout and guide groups turned out to take part in parades to mark St George’s Day.

Events were held in Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted on Sunday ahead of the annual day in honour of the patron saint of England and scouting.

Dacorum Borough Council’s chief executive raised the St George’s Day Flag on Monday to mark the day.

About St.Georges Day Parade

This event is for every Beaver, Rainbow, Brownie, Scout, Guide, Explorer, Ranger, Senior Section member, Scout Network member and Leader in Hemel Hempstead District Scouts and West Hertfordshire Division Guides. It is the only time when the whole of our organisations are on display together in public, and is the one time each year we make a special effort to renew our Scout and Guide Promises.

This is a formal event with dress code being full smart uniform. We suggest that should the weather be cold you wear layers underneath your uniform and in the case of rain bring a small waterproof.

This years event will include a very prominent parade of all young people and adults, from Gadebridge Park to the Civic Centre in Marlowes, to celebrate the last year and renew our promises.;

When is it?     Sunday 22nd April 2012
Start                 2.30pm – Gadebridge Park
Finish              4.30pm – Civic Centre, Marlowes

Parents are invited to join us for the event at the Civic Centre in Marlowes and witness our young people renewing their promises. Parents are asked not to walk in the parade. A collection will take place during the parade, with the money going to the Mayor’s chosen charity “DENS”

In the event of rain an informal ceremony will take place in the underground car park at the Civic Centre in Marlowes at 3pm

We ask that you please spend a minute rehearsing the first verse of the national Anthem with an adult

God save out gracious queen
Long live our noble queen
God save our queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save our queen.
