Retro: St George's Day parades in Northamptonshire

Wicksteed Park should have been filled with many hundreds of youngsters last Sunday for the annual Scouts’ St George’s Day parade.

Scouts, Cubs and Beavers from across the region usually march across the Kettering park on the Sunday nearest to England’s saint’s day, after attending a ceremony at the pavilion in which they renewed their promises and received awards.

But the lockdown instructions issued in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic meant organisers had to cancel this year’s walk.

So we’ve taken a look back through our archives to bring you a selection of pictures from walks gone by.
