Hundreds of Scouts, Beavers and Cubs are preparing to march through Melton town centre for the annual St George’s Day parade.

This year’s event, which will start from Tuxford and Tebbutt dairy’s car park, will take place on Sunday April 26, with the procession being led by the 5th Melton group.

A service is scheduled for 1pm at St Mary’s Church, which will also include the presentation of various Scouting awards, followed by the traditional salute being taken in Market Place at around 2.15pm.

Melton Scouts district commissioner Ian Cliffe said: “Everyone is looking forward to the parade as we always do.

“We are hoping for a good turn out on the streets and, of course, some good weather.”

The parade will once again coincide with the annual Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic, which is due to finish in Melton town centre about 3.35pm in Sherrard Street.
