St. George's Day Celebrated Virtually

St. George's Day is an important date in the Scouting calendar. As Scouts, we often take part in an annual celebration to commemorate the day including a parade and the renewal of our Scout Promise. This year, we were unable to meet together for this event, so we organised an online event for our members and those in our district.

Cathy Pynn, an Assistant Priest at St Luke’s in Pamber Heath, joined us to give an opening talk about the story of St. George. Cathy announced an exciting competition for our young people: drawing a picture of St. George and the dragon.

Following this, our lead volunteer Gloria invested Louis as our Deputy Group Scout Leader. This ceremony is held for all members when they join or change position within the Scouts, from Beaver Scouts to adult volunteers with years of experience. The lead volunteer for Beaver Scouts then proceeded to renew the Beaver Scout Promise with all the Beavers attending our event. This was followed by one of our lead volunteers for Cub Scouts and Scouts.

We were privileged to be joined by worldwide adventurer and inspiration speaker James Ketchell. Over the course of forty minutes, James inspired our young people with a talk about the amazing adventures he has undertaken, and the obstacles he had to overcome.
