2013 Renewal of Promise & St. George’s Day Parade is taking place this Sunday 21st April, an email was sent out a week ago as a reminder and was also included in most of your section programmes as a date to remember and add to your diary.
Renewal of Promise is a big part of the scouting calendar, this is where all section members including the Sea Rangers renewal their Scout and Ranger promise each year along with all the other Scout Groups from the Southend West District.
The Parade for Southend West District will be taking place once again along Marine Parade and Rectory Grove into Wesley Church for a short service. The parade gets to shows off to the public of Leigh that Scouting is still a strong and visual part of this community.
This is a compulsory event and all members of the Group must attend and in full uniform. If the weather is cold or wet please bring a dark waterproof jacket (no bright colours or slogans please) as we will still be marching.
The Group will be meeting at Marine Parade opposite Herschell Road, Leigh between 1400-1430hrs, and the parade is to commence at 1430hrs, after the short service at Wesley Church we will parade back along the Broadway and Marine Parade and we will finish at the same spot at 1600hrs. Parents and any other family members and friends are welcome to watch the parade but I’m afraid are unable to join us during the service at Wesley Church due to the limited number of space.
3rd CB is the largest Group in the District and it is always nice to see a large turnout of smartly dressed members at these kinds of events, so please carry on the tradition of being the best and proudest Group in the District!
