To all Beaver, Cub and Scout Parents,
Saint George’s Day Parade this Sunday 27th April 2014
Just an update regarding the arrangements for Sunday. The current weather forecast predicts the possibility of rain. If it looks like rain the parade will still go ahead, so if it seems necessary please send your child with a light waterproof. A thin cagoule type garment would be preferable rather than a heavy winter coat. For extra warmth children may wear an extra layer under their uniform top.
Beavers and Cubs should bring the decorated shields they brought home tonight.
I visited all three sections tonight and clearly most of the childrens' scarves need to be washed, ironed and neatly rolled. They should look like this when worn:
A reminder of the arrangements:
27th April is the District Saint George’s Celebration when Enfield Scouts parade through The Town carnival style from Enfield Grammar Upper School to Grammar Lower School. Map: http://goo.gl/maps/jQwa0 . Full turnout is expected for this once a year event to celebrate Scouting’s patron saint.
On this occasion “smart” uniform is required which means ironed scarves tightly and neatly rolled, clean (and ironed if scout shirt) uniform top, black/school trousers/skirt and clean black polished shoes.
We will meet at our designated space marked for the 6th Enfield in the school playground behind the Post Office in Little Park Gardens, EN2 6PD at 2.45pm prompt. We will be identified by our unique group scarves.
Dismissal will be from Enfield Grammar Lower School playground, Silver Street opposite the Civic Centre at 4.30pm. Parents should come to us in the playground after the dismissal to collect your children.
Parents, family and friends are welcome to line the route to watch the parade along Church Street through the Town.
Many thanks for supporting this once a year occasion.
