Richmond Northampton St Georges Day Parade

22 April 2012

Richmond Village residents welcomed St Georges Day with a scout parade on Sunday 22nd April.

Local Scouts, Cubs and Beavers paraded from Grange Park community centre to join Richmond Residents at their retirement village.

Children, leaders and parents arrived at 11:15am on the Village Green.  Residents sat and watched as the children renewed their promise and joined in singing the Hymn “All Things Bright and Beautiful” accompanied by resident pianist Joy Mace.

A short prayer was led by Richmond resident Gillian Barker followed by the National Anthem “God Save The Queen”.

Activities co-ordinator Chris Rayatt said “it’s been a fantastic opportunity for intergenerational activities and our residents have loved seeing the children.  There was a large attendance of children and parents here today; it was such a lovely atmosphere”.
