Today is St. George’s day which has special meaning to Scouts as St. George is our patron saint. Today (or as near to as possible) is when all Scouts (that includes Beavers, Cubs, Scouts,Explorers and all adults in Scouting) renew our promise. It would be fantastic to see all photos of all of 5th Prittlewell in uniform making their promise (don’t forget the Scout sign - right hand mid 3 fingers raised and thumb holding little finger) tonight before going on your doorsteps to clap for all the NHS and essential key workers. Please post any photos in this Facebook group.Join us on Thursday to celebrate St. George's Day. ... See MoreSee Less
