Achievements of guides celebrated
Brownies and Guides from across the Haverhill area joined together to celebrate the achievements of some of their own.
Leaders and youngsters met at 2nd Haverhill Brownies in the Burton Centre last Monday to mark Founders Day, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell and Olave Baden-Powell, the founders of the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts movement.
It was the perfect opportunity to present a variety of awards to guides who had completed their Baden Powell Challenge Award and leaders who have dedicated years of their time to the group.
“We had five guides who have completed the award and also gave out some long service awards to our leaders,” said Emily Moore, one of the leaders of the Haverhill group.
“It was a special night.”
Among those being honoured were Diane Wilkins, Barbara Adshead and Barbara Rooley, who were presented with their 30 years long service awards. Hannah Moss and Michele Norton were recognised for five years service and Mrs Moore and Claire Waller were given certificates for completing additional section training for the Brownies.
Rainbows, Brownies and Guides from Haverhill, Kedington and Steeple Bumpstead attended the event, which included food tasting, crafts and learning about guides around the world.
