St George’s Day saw hundreds of Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and Explorers from across Bedford come together for a parade.

The troops gathered in Harpur Square to march along The Embankment to the Bandstand, where there was a “bandstand take-over” with youngsters playing games and taking part in fun activities.
The day also marked the start of the annual Bridge Walk, an important event in the Scouting calendar which raises hundreds of pounds for the charity.
