SCOUT & GUIDE BAND FLY THE FLAG FOR KINGSTON…………
A group of older members of the Kingston & Malden Scout & Guide Band headed over to the Isle of Wight last weekend 16/8, to take part in the Annual illuminated carnival parade in Shanklin.
With head torches, fluorescent scarves & t-shirts and coloured lights on instruments the Band took the lead in the Parade, which winds it's way through the seaside town for over an hour. Large crowds were entertained by the Band and cheered all the floats and marching groups as they passed by. August is carnival season on the Island with many of the towns hosting their own parades during the month.
The organisers of the Shanklin Carnival were pleased to welcome Kingston & Malden Band back to the town and are already looking forward to a repeat performance next year!"
