Grantham St George's Day Parade cancelled and music festival concert postponed
This year's St George's Day Parade through Grantham has been cancelled and this weekend's Grantham Music Festival Trophy Winners Concert has been postponsed.
The parade is organised by Grantham and District Scouts who have decided in light of the latest information on the coronavirus outbreak from government that the parade and service cannot go ahead.
A spokesman for the scouts said it was felt it was 'too risky' to go ahead with the parade this year. "We felt we had to make the decision in view of the situation and with a quite a lot of leaders who are over the age of 70 and, of course, a lot of children taking part as well."
