IT was a very special St George’s Day Parade in Tenbury.

Boys from the Scouts, Cubs and Beaver groups dressed as knights, while the girls from the Brownies, Guides and Rainbows were in dragon costume.

They took part in a parade to St Mary’s Church where a special presentation was made to a man who has given his adult life to scouting.

Having reached the age of 70 Richard Norman has had to retire after 55 year in the scouting movement – the last 30 of them in Tenbury.

At a ceremony in the church Mr Norman was presented with a watch and a letter of thanks from Bear Grylls the chief scout.

There will also be a plaque put up in the Tenbury scout hut that Mr Norman helped to build.

“The young people have paraded before but this is the first time that they have been in costume which they made themselves,” said Sue Perry the chaplain to Tenbury scouts.

Also taking part in the parade were the Royal Naval Association, Royal British Legion and members of the town council.
