This week’s Guide meeting was a trip to watch one of our Guides in the dress rehearsal of her school musical, Bugsy Malone. It was a win-win situation: we got a free show (and biscuits in the interval!), and they got an audience.
The turnout was quite small because of a few factors: the school is in a village 8 miles away, the start time was 2 hours earlier than we usually meet, and there was flooding on the roads round about, with off-puttingly heavy traffic.
Still, we had an enthusiastic crowd of 6 Guides, one Young Leader, 4 leaders, 2 mums, and one little sister. We enjoyed the show (I was most impressed with how many of the cast maintained American accents all the way through) and gave the children lots of claps and cheers. A good way to end the half term!
