The sun shone for the long procession which formed up near the Market Square roundabout and followed a route down the High Street to St Mary’s Church.

The procession was led by local drumming group Drumskullz followed by Scouting and Guiding groups.

Youngsters, of all ages, from Scouting and Guiding groups also carried colourful flags in the procession. A good crowd of people lined the High Street.

Dignitaries from Rother and Battle Councils gathered on the Abbey Green to welcome the procession as it arrived.

It was followed by a packed service in historic St Mary’s Church were flags and colours were presented.
