As is the tradition, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts congregated together at the Leas Cliffe Hall, Folkestone to celebrate St Georges Day – patron saint of England and Scouting.

After an impressive parade of scouting flags a service was held for all of Folkestone District Scout groups, Leaders and parents.  A service was then held focusing on the story of the Jungle Book as 2016 is the 100th anniversary of Cub Scouting.  After we all bellowed out a rendition of the Bare Necessities, (some of us scarily trying out the actions!) all groups paraded through Folkestone showing everyone the strength of the scouting movement in the area.  Following this all groups congregated to the Leas to watch a battle of St George and the Dragon, magnificently made out of paper mache and carried high above the crowds on wooden poles.  An impressive display which made a fitting end to a celebration of St Georges Day.
