Scouts from Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset joined together for a St George’s Day parade on Sunday – and the youngsters ensured it went a little differently this year.

For the first time, the Axe Scout District gave its young members the chance to shape how they wanted the celebrations to unfold and the youngsters had been consulted for the past 12 months about what they would like to do during the event.

The parade started at Weston’s Marine Lake, before moving along the seafront to Grove Park. The scouts were joined by musicians and the Avon and Somerset police cadets.

Once at the park, the youngsters ensured the traditional event was given a modern twist, by introducing campfire songs to the proceedings. The aim was to celebrate not only St George’s Day, but everything the Axe Scout District does.
