Dear all,

Please see below for details about this year's Saint George's Day Parade.

- The date for the parade is Sunday 21st April 2024.

- At 14:00, the parade will form up outside the town hall at the bottom of the high street

- Groups should bring their section flags with them to be carried by the young people.

- The parade will march off at 14:15 and will follow up the high street into Windmill Street, crossing Railway Place and then turning right into Community Square arriving at approximately 14:25 for a 14:30 service.

- Those who cannot easily walk the distance are more than welcome to meet at Community Square for the service at 14:30.

- A short service and renewal of promises will take place led by the District Chaplain, District Youth Lead, and various young people from all sections.

- At approximately 15:10, the service will conclude following a message from the mayor or their representative and the National Anthem.

- The parade will then return to the start point following the same route in reverse. As the parade passes the library on Windmill Street, there will be a saluting base. The salute will be taken by the county scout representative, the mayor of Gravesham (or their representative), and possibly other VIPs.

- The parade will be dismissed when it returns to the start point at approximately 15:30.

Parents and family are welcome to follow the parade and gather at the back/sides of Community Square but should be discouraged from walking beside the parade as this causes unnecessary congestion amongst participants.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on

I hope to see as many of you there as possible!
