A St George’s Day Parade takes place through Brighouse on Sunday.

The parade of scouts, girl guides and other youth organisations starts at 3pm from the Central Methodist Church before moving through the town centre and arriving back at the church at 4pm.

This year’s parade through Halifax town centre has had to be cancelled due to the Piece Hall being closed.

Calderdale Council’s head of neighbourhoods, Andrew Pitts, said: “We were keen for the parade to continue and have given advice to organisers about alternative locations. If the event was going ahead, organisers would have needed to apply for a road closure, but we haven’t been approached.”
