High Peak scouts and guides took part in their first St George’s Day parade in eight years on Sunday.

Debbie Rushworth, High Peak District Scout Commissioner, said: “It was a very proud moment seeing everyone coming together and it was so nice to have it back after nearly a decade without a celebratory parade.

“I hope we can do something again like this next year.”

The parade took place yesterday, April 22, on the closest Sunday to St George’s Day.
