Hundreds of scouts troop colours for St George's Day
Nearly one thousand beavers, cubs and scouts came out to parade their colours in honour of their patron saint St George.
Youngsters from the 16 groups of the Greenford and District Scouts, covering Greenford, Northolt, Perivale, Southall and Wembley, trooped through Greenford Broadway on Sunday (22).
Despite the recent rain, the clouds held off for a glorious sunny morning as the children marched from Edward Betham Primary School in Oldfield Lane South, down Costons Lane, and along the Broadway to Ravenor Park to celebrate St George's Day on Monday (23), who is more commonly remembered as the patron saint of England.
And scout leaders waved large St George's Cross flags.
Peter Melvin, cub leader of the 1st Northolt Scouts, said: "It was a beautiful morning. We had the Queen's Lieutenant for Ealing and the Queen's Lieutenant for Brent and the mayors of Brent and Ealing and MP Steve Pound.
"The youngsters paraded their own colours, each group has its own flag. There were a lot of people on the streets cheering us on this time as it was such a nice day."
