Proud mums and dads lined St Peter’s Hill in Grantham this afternoon (Sunday) to cheer along the town’s scouts and guides.

Groups marched through the centre of Grantham to a service at St Wulfram’s Church, before marching the route in reverse and saluting scout and guide leaders and civic dignataries in front of the Guildhall.

‘The Land of Hope and Glory’ played during the march, from a stage which formed part of the entertainment at St George on the Green.

The annual family fun day was “the best yet”, said Roy Wright, chairman of Grantham Carnival and Events Group, which put on the day of fun.

Among the attractions on offer were children’s rides, trampolines, face painting, tombolas, birds of prey, a puppet show and circus workshop.

Bands and dancing groups took to the stage throughout the day, and a new venture in turning the marquee into ‘Ye Olde Tea Shoppe’ was a success.
