This week, the Guides met at a scenic spot with a hillfort and some great views.
Everyone had brought a picnic tea, and we went up to eat it in a sheltered spot inside the fort.
It was a beautiful evening, with lots of sun and not much wind, but just enough for a bit of kite-flying.
One of our Guides received her Baden-Powell Award, which she has worked very hard for, from the District Commissioner. The Guide’s parents were there, as well as her sisters: another Guide, a Brownie and a Rainbow. So it was quite the mixed-section evening! The Rangers joined us too. They had prepared a quiz that got everyone running around the hilltop in teams searching for the answers.
We could easily have spent longer there – I’d worried that we would run out of things to do, and had come over-prepared, but hadn’t factored in that 20 minutes were taken up with walking between the car park where we met and the picnic spot. I guess it’s better for everyone to leave wanting more.
