District scouts do their best to celebrate St George

Over 300 young people and leaders from Swanley District Scouts paraded on Saturday 27 April to mark St George's Day.

The annual parade and inspection were attended by distinguished guests, including the Mayor of Swanley, Michael Horwood, Vice Chair of Sevenoaks Council, Laurence Ball, Cllr Rachel Warterton, Chair of Crockenhill Parish Council and Cllr Clare Barnes, Swanley Christchurch.

Speaking to the Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers and their Leaders, District Commissioner, Frances Wallace said: "I want to thank each and every one of you for helping to make Scouting the fabulous youth organisation it is today. We are delighted to see so many of you and thank our sponsors for today, St John's Lodge Fidelity of West Kingsdown Freemasons."

Awards were given out for achievements, including several Chief Scout's Gold Awards, volunteering awards and swimming badges. Several adult leaders received long service and distinguished service awards.

Children and young people were then able to enjoy a day of fun, including climbing wall, archery, zorbing and more traditional Scouting activities.

Swanley District Scouts has over 500 children and young people ranging from just four years old to 18. Volunteer adult leaders and supporters help to keep Scouting going for the benefit of young people. Frances said:

"We always need more adult leaders and supporters. Even if you can only spare an hour a week, we need you. Scouting provides children and young people with skills for life, builds confidence and provides friendship and fun."
