#Scoutpride Parade  

Please remember you will be representing The Scout Association and we may have young people attending with us. Please act as you would at any other Scout event, including following the Yellow Card and refraining from smoking, drinking and eating when on the parade and when you are in view of the public (including the stall).  Help us show the public that Scouting is fun and welcoming and open to all #scouting4all



Please do interact with the crowd - smile, wave, etc.  (This is really important)

If you see filming taking place & photos being taken along the route, it'd be great if you're happy to, to smile and wave. There's a chance you may see a few protestors along the route - please just ignore them.



At the minute it's looking like a pretty good weather forecast but as you know the British weather could always change so please make sure you stay warm, have sun location with you and a bottle of water.


Social Media

FLAGS Active support unit uses 3 main platforms for social media, if you do take any pictures, video's then please upload or "like&share" / Retweet others on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

If you would like to wear your group or county necker as well then this is totally fine, it doesn't matter what you wear for trousers or shorts but make sure you wear comfortable footwear ie trainers or shoes. Please make sure you travel light for the parade as we don't have any storage.
