Event description

Description

Merseyside Scouts is open to all young people and adults regardless of their sexuality or gender identity. We have a clear Equal Oppurtunities Policy and attend Pride events to demonstrate our commitment to equality.

Attending Pride events is a way of demonstrating our commitment to equality and building a more inclusive society, and showing that we openly welcome LGBT members. In Liverpool, Merseyside Scouts has an active presence within pride, showing that we are an inclusive county and that we strive to provide Scouting4All.

We will be taking part in the Pride march and supporting the Community Zone.

Information to help you prepare:

The March musters from 10.30am outside St Georges Hall and sets off at 12noon. There will be some general entertainment on the steps of St Georges Hall, a choir, some dancers etc and some speeches before we set off.

The route goes along Lime Street, down through Queens Sq Bus Station, along Whitechapel to the big McDonalds in town, then turns right, up Lord Street, through Derby Square by the law courts, down James Street and over into Mann Island and the Pier head, where we finish approximately 1pm - 1.30pm after a final speech.

There will be an education and concessions area on the Pier Head along with 100 seater cinema lorry, climbing wall and food court, which will go on till about 5pm. There will be loads of activities for the children to get involved with in our educational area too; games, stories, etc.

Merseyside Scouts will meet together at the fountain side of St Georges Hall at 11am to prepare for the march, any help and support in the Community Zone would be very welcome in the afternoon.
