St George was chosen as the Patron Saint of Scouting by the Movement’s founder, Lord Baden-Powell, as far back as 1907. Every year since then, Scouts across the world recognise St George in various ways, including a renewal of the Promise made by members when they join Scouting.
We invite you to join us on Saturday 27th April from 12 noon – 4.00pm at Broadgate Park in Beeston for what promises to be a fun-packed afternoon of activities for youg people. Scouts from Beeston, Beeston Rylands, Toton, Chilwell, Trowell, Bramcote, Stapleford, Attenborough will be celebrating St George’s connection with Scouting
We will be joined by local members of Girlguiding in Nottinghamshire, our sister organisation – also founded by Robert Baden-Powell
Current and past members of the Scout Association and members of Girlguiding UK will be invited to renew their Promise during a short ceremony at 2.00pm.
We looking forward to seeing you there.
