Scouts from the Senlac division turned out in force on Sunday to take part in a St George’s Day parade through Battle.

Flags were paraded along the High Street in a procession led by drummers from Northiam Bonfire Society.

The procession made its way to St Mary’s Church where a special St George’s Day service took place.

During the ceremony Christine Wilden was honoured for her 40 years service to Senlac Scouts.

She was presented with a certificate by Sussex Scout leader Derek Cleaver.

There was a Japanese theme with some Scouts displaying eye-catching origami creations in the parade and displaying Japanese flags.

With more than 700 members across the area, Scouting is alive and kicking in this corner of East Sussex – with nine different sections established in Bexhill, Battle and a host of nearby villages like Little Common, Robertsbridge and Ninfield.
