Not even the current COVID-19 lockdown can halt activities within Girlguiding Radlett as many leaders keep in touch with their units via social media and send activity ideas to parents.
Some of their youngest members, Rainbows, have been enjoying the sunshine whilst earning their drawing and nature badges in their back gardens.
Brownies have made posters to display in their windows and are busily making trash fashion costumes for their teddies to bring along to their next weekly Zoom meeting.
Girls from all sections have been keeping their promise by making up pamper packs for NHS staff containing items such as hand cream and treats for coffee time, as well as supporting elderly or vulnerable neighbours by dropping off essential items.
Whist the annual awards ceremony has been postponed, no less than five local leaders have been recognised with awards this spring: Marion Strickland has earned her 30 year service award; Lesley Holden and Julia Davis earned Hertfordshire County Guiding Good Service Awards; and Verity Maclachlan and Nicola Day earned Anglia Region Good Service Awards.
Whilst planned spring camps and holidays have had to be put on hold, leaders are looking forward to arranging plenty of residential activities and outings for their girls once things return to normal. In the meantime, virtual Guiding will continue to connect members.
Girlguiding Radlett District welcomes new members and volunteers.
