Arrangements for the 2015 St Georges Day Celebrations
Dear Parents / Carers
Below is the Information for this years’ St Georges Day Parade.
This is one of the most important Scouting events of the year. We would like as many of the young people as possible to attend, it would be really good if we could get 100% from all sections.
We will be asking a Beaver, Cub and Scout to carry the flags for the group and they will need to be available on Saturday 25th April 10.00 – 11.00 at Gloucester Cathedral. In full uniform for a rehearsal (Unless your leader has spoken to you, you do not need to attend on this day).
The Parade & Service will be on Sunday 26th April. All to meet at Spa Road at 15.45 The parade moves off at 16.15 Parade arrives at Cathedral 16.35 Cathedral Service starts 17.00. Service finishes 18.00 (approx)
Dress Code This is a high profile event, therefore correct uniform must be worn. Black/grey school trousers/skirt, black shoes
Scout shirt to be tucked in and not worn outside trousers, group neckerchief. No Jeans or Trainers. Top coats will only be worn if it is raining when the parade moves off from Spa Rd.
It is important to wear a Tee-shirt under uniform for warmth.
There will be a collection at the start of the parade.
Parents and friends may be admitted to the service provided there are spare seats after all those taking part are seated.
Collect your child from outside the Cathedral at 18.00 (Approx)
Please make every attempt to attend this high profile event – This is one of only a few events where we get a chance to show the district as a whole
