Scouts to join St George's Day parade in Windsor
Last year's parade

The annual St George's Day march by Windsor and Eton's scouts and guides takes place on Sunday.

Young people from scout groups, the guides, cubs, brownies and beavers will gather at Bachelors Acre at 2.30pm ready for the march to Windsor Parish Church in the High Street.

Each group will be carrying their own standard.

An area of Victoria Street between Madeira Walk and Sheet Street, plus Sheet Street between its junction with Victoria Street and Park Street will be closed to traffic between 2.30pm and 3pm. 

The marchers will renew their scouting promise during a service at the church, officiated over by Reverend Linda Hillier from Slough United Reformed Church.

The march back from the church will start about 3.50pm. The same roads will close between 3.50pm and 4.10pm with the addition of Castle Hill and St Albans Street.

More than 500 scouts and guides from 20 different groups in Windsor and Eton District took part in the march last year.

Scouts were also out in force in Windsor on Monday for the National Review of Queen's Scouts.
