HUNDREDS of proud scouts, brownies, guides, beavers, rainbows and cubs paraded through Kidderminster for the annual St George’s Day parade.

Organisers hailed the event, held on Sunday, April 23, as a huge success as the groups, their leaders and bands marched through town centre streets before attending church services.

There was a tinge of sadness to this year’s parade following the death of Kidderminster scouting legend Mark Woodward last month.

The scouts, beavers, cubs, explorers rainbows, brownies, guides and the senior section were joined by loved ones and residents lining the streets as well as dignitaries including Kidderminster Mayor Mary Rayner and Wyre Forest MP Mark Garnier.

Marcus Hart, chairman of Kidderminster District Scouts, said: “I am delighted to say that the parade was very successful.

“We had literally hundreds of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and leaders parading and attending St George's Church and St Mary's church.

“The weather was kind to us and it was great to see so many parents turning out to line the streets of the parade.

“It is great that we are still able to put on our St George's Day Parade thanks to an excellent team of volunteer marshals and SARA, ably led by Paul Goodyear at short notice this year as a result of the sad and sudden loss of Mark Woodward who had built up a great team of marshals."
