Lancashire scouts believe St George’s Day should be more recognised across the UK.
South Ribble’s scouting association gathered in Leyland town centre for another time to celebrate their annual St George’s Day Parade, Sunday 23rd April 2017.
Skip Lis, Scout Leader for St Ambrose Church division, Leyland said: “The reason we celebrate St George’s Day is because he’s not only the patron saint of England, he’s actually our patron saint of scouting as well.”
Members of 52 groups in Lancashire including the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers all took part in the event.
The event saw a mass of people from the Leyland community line the streets to watch the scouts in action.

Sunday 23rd April meeting 1pm on the grass op. St Mary’s Church, Broadfield Drive.
Scout groups across Lancashire have prepared for the parade by advertising publicly through social media about the event and what activities will be going on throughout the day.
“All scout groups always advertise the St George’s Day Parade, as most scout groups now have multimedia; Facebook and Twitter, so they are all advertising all the activities we are doing throughout the day.”
Celebrations for the annual occasion have took place in Leyland for many years now as St Mary’s RC Church is the biggest church in South Ribble.
