Ricky Week in Rickmansworth – The grand parade

We were in Rickmansworth today for a walk and were surprised at 1.30 to see a full parade through the town. Scouts, Judo, CAB, Fairtrade, Girl Guide, etc etc.

Although I did not have my camera with my I had my trusty camera phone here.

A big thank you to all who put on the parade, in todays lovely sunshine. They came down the High Street and looped back behind the shops, in front of Penn Place, the streets were packed.

I bring you exclusive shots from the event

Here is a pdf which gives the full programme for the Ricky Week (I hate that abbreviation for the town, but it is affectionately known as that by locals and visitors!)

 

In case you wonder where Rickmansworth here, a short explanation from Wikipedia

Rickmansworth is the administrative seat of the Three Rivers District Council in HertfordshireEngland. With a population of 14,571 recorded at the 2001 census, Rickmansworth is a small town in South-West Hertfordshire, located mainly to the north of the Grand Union Canal and the River Colne. The nearest large town is Watford, 4.4 miles (7.1 km) to the east. It grew dramatically during the Victorian era, and then again during the 1920s and 1930s as part of the Metro-land area, due to the extension of Metropolitan Railway, and became a commuter townChiltern Main Line diesel-express trains from Marylebone station, London, via Harrow-on-the Hill, to Aylesbury–change for Birmingham–and fast, electric Metropolitan trains from the City of London, via Baker Street, to Amersham-on-the-Hill (all stopping at Rickmansworth station) together with the rural surroundings, have all contributed to the growth of Rickmansworth.
