Hundreds of young people descended on High Wycombe town centre yesterday for the annual St George's Parade. 

Scout groups from across the town and beyond joined in the parade through the High Street to All Saints Church to celebrate England's patron saint George on Sunday afternoon. 

Crowds lined town centre roads as scouts and their leaders marched in the streets holding their flags aloft. 

The parade then reached All Saints Church, where a ceremony was held with town dignitaries including Wycombe District Council chairman, Cllr Suzanne Brown and mayor Cllr Brian Pearce. 

The St George's Day celebrations are continuing in the town today, with a special market. 

The family-friendly event will be a day-long celebration, complete with food stalls, a hog roast and street performers.
