Many, many scouts from all over West Lancashire gathered at the bandstand in Coronation Park in Ormskirk on Sunday 22nd April 2012 to celebrate St. George's Day.

The scouts sang and prayed together as they celebrated the feast day (actually on 23rd April) of Saint George; England's Patron Saint and also the Patron Saint of Scouting.
