BEAVERS, Cubs Guides and Rainbows from Alveston celebrated St George's Day by taking their self-made dragon on parade.

The village's uniformed organisations paraded their dragon along the street of Alveston on April in a late St Georges day celebration.

The 2nd Alveston Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, together with the 1st Alveston Rainbows and Guides, formed the parade to walk along Greenhill to St Helen’s Church waving flags with a horse, knight and a fair sized green dragom

A spokesperson for the organisations said: "The Beavers and Cubs had made and decorated their dragon with great enthusiasm, and in a fashion reminiscent of a Chinese New Year dragon, danced him along in the parade, whilst others had large card shields with St George’s Crosses on.

"The Rainbows had got suitably themed up with St George’s flags and some shields too, but perhaps the dragon was relieved the ‘mounted’ knight was further away at the head of the parade and Rainbow’s young leader “Fox" rode her noble steed Baloo.

"Some of the Cubs have been discussing whether an ‘improved’ dragon breathing smoke or fire could be added for next year – but we’ll just have to wait and see…!"
