On Sunday 28 April the youngsters of Thurrock Marching Brass donned their parade outfits and lead upwards of 900 scouts for the annual St George's Day Scout Parade which started at Hathaway Road, Grays and ended up at Blackshots sports grounds.
It is an incredible honour to be able to lead such a prestigious parade and one on our calendar that everyone looks forward to.
Speaking of the march, Corps Director, David Friend comments "We really look forward to the St George's Day Parade and I would like to thank Terry Mead and all of those involved in organising such a great event for the youngsters of Thurrock. We hear all the time that youngsters in our borough don't have things to focus their minds and energies on but here we are and here the scouts organisations are proving just how not true that is. The kids did a great job parading today and their repertoire of marching tunes just keeps growing and I was especially proud of them all after a full day in Nottingham and the Indoor Music Games (www.indoormusicgames.org) Midlands show yesterday and would like to thank everyone involved in helping us to prepare them and to get them parade ready".
