It was great to see all our beavers, cubs, scouts and leaders gathering together last Sunday to represent 1st Clifton Sea Scouts in the St George’s Day parade in York. Thank you to all the parents for delivering and collecting their children on time and having them looking so smart. We hope they all enjoyed the day. Did you spot our very own flag carrier Matthew in the York Press report on Monday too?
DID YOU KNOW?
Baden-Powell chose St George to be the Patron Saint of The Scout Association because he felt that St George was typical of what a Scout should be.
When he was faced by a difficulty or danger, however great it appeared – even in the shape of a dragon – he did not avoid it or fear it but went at it with all the power he could. When a Scout faces a difficulty or danger they should go at it boldly and confidently, using every power that he can to try and overcome it, and the probability is that he will succeed. We hope all our young people do their best to follow this example – they might need to remember it down at the river on a Friday during boating season!
