West Norfolk celebrates St George’s Day
Hundreds of scouts, beavers, cubs, explorers and network scouts marched their way from King's Lynn's Tuesday Market Place to the historic St Nicholas' Chapel to celebrate St George's Day.
North-west Norfolk scout district commissioner Rowland Smith, who led the parade, said: 'We celebrated what scouting provides for young people, including the opportunities and training it provides. And they all got to see they are part of a huge community. Our collection was for the Mind charity and it's so important, even at a young age, that they all deal with issues of the community and mental health.'
A spring fayre in Marshland St James featured a professional narrator who told the story of St George and Phoenix Re-enactment society entertained visitors with archery and gunpowder firearms.
Proceeds from the event supported the Marshland St James and District Community and Sports Centre (MDCSC) charity.
