St Georges Day Quest 2009

his year we celebrated St Georges Day with a difference and challenged teams of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers to set out on a Holy Quest around the streets of Warwick, in search of the Holy Grail and St George.

Aided by monks who were positioned around Warwick, the Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorers teams were asked a question and with the appropriate answer, received clues to the next Monk and so on until they found St George.

Each team was also challenged to design and make a shield, robust enough to be carried on the Quest, which were judged in a competition for the biggest, most colourful, most unusual etc.

Following the Quest, there was a short outdoor service and the usual parade through the town centre.
