A spokesman said: “It was a glorious sight as the boys and girls from Guildford West and Guildford East Scout districts paraded up Cathedral hill with their flags fluttering in the wind.”

The service, held to celebrate St George, the patron saint of Scouting, was reviewed by the Mayor of Guildford, Marsha Moseley, and Andrew Carvell, assistant county commissioner of the Explorer Scouts. The sermon was led by the Rev Iain Forbes.
