On Sunday St George’s Day will be marked across Ipswich and each year it brings together friends and family to commemorate our patron saint.
Scouts, Brownies, Cubs and Guides always throw themselves into the celebrations and regularly get involved with parades and demonstrations on the day.
The groups have been involved with town celebrations for more than 70 years, and processions through the town centre are a regular sight, drawing in crowds of spectators. Some will even have the honour of being a standard bearer.
The tale of St George dates back to the 6th century when he rescued a maiden by slaying a fearsome fire-breathing dragon.
St George is also patron saint of Georgia, Malta, Ethiopia, Bulgaria, Malta, Portugal and Slovenia.
