More than 350 marchers from Harborough District’s eight Scout Groups held their annual St George’s Day Celebrations on Sunday, parading to an event at Welland Park Academy.

There they saw video chats with three local scouts who received their Queen’s Scout Awards at Windsor Castle that day; Amy Gibbs, Sarah-Jane Dove and Tom Worthington.

Five long-serving adult volunteers from the district were also recognised for their services to Scouting; Paul Allenby, Mike Burden, Neil Heptonstall, Iain Provins and Pauline Wells.
