St. Georges Day. 24th April 2016
St Georges Day Parade is our annual get together of all members and groups from the Nuneaton area to celebrate achievements from the past Scouting year. We would like all members to attend.
The event this year is being held at Riversley Park, Nuneaton.
We will meet up next to the Tennis Courts in front of the Pingles Leisure Centre at 13:30. There will be signs to show where 11th Nuneaton will be lining up, alongside other groups in the District.
We will parade through the tunnel, around the museum and back to the band stand.
As part of the service, 10 Cubs from 11th Nuneaton will join with 90 other Cubs from Nuneaton to release 100 helium balloons to celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts. This will combine with a balloon race in aid of our chosen charity.
We will be selling balloon race tickets for this event via section meetings.
After the Service we shall parade from the Band Stand back anticlockwise around the park with the usual saluting base on route.
The estimated time for collection from the Pingles is 15.30.
For this event full uniform is required – however as it is an outdoors service please dress appropriately for the weather conditions on the day – coats may be required!
As this is a public parade, photographers from the local press will be present.
If there are any questions, please contact your section leader.
