2010-04-25 – St George’s Parade / GSL Challenge

stGeorgeToday representatives from all sections of the 5th Dartford Scout Group attended a St George’s Day service in full smart uniform with the other groups in the Dartford District.  We assembled in Central Park at 10:45 for the 11:00 service  and then paraded around the town @ 11:40.

Thankyou to everyone who made the effort to attend this important service and to all the supporters who lined the streets to cheer us on.tired-runner-cartoon

Ted ‘Cougar’ Essex stepped in to lead the group in the parade as GSL Paul ran the London Marathon to raise money for the EllenorLions Hospice, which he did in @ 4 1/2 hrs .  Paul had challenged all sections to try and match his 26.2 mile effort in what ever way they could.

Each cub in the Collins and Leigh Cub Packs ran 2 laps of the park and 8 members of the Earley Scout Troop walked the 8 miles from Greenhithe back to the hall along the Thames.
