St George's Day celebrations

Children got patriotic on Sunday with a St George’s Day parade at St Nicholas church.

Scouts and Guides met in Abbey Fields before parading into the church for the annual celebration to mark the patron saint of Scouting and Guiding.

Children were taught about the legend and reality of St George before creating a huge cross using several hundred paper napkins.

They renewed club promises before parading back to Abbey Fields.
