Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and their leaders in Radlett continued to meet every week during the second and third lockdowns, keeping their girls engaged and offering fun activities virtually.
Kitchens were turned into science labs, art studios and bakeries, but as soon as restrictions were lifted members couldn’t wait to get back together to enjoy face to face activities.
Four of their units began the term with special holiday events.
Team building treasure hunts, a creative activity and then campfire building at their local Guide Headquarters was the order of the day and girls toasted marshmallows to make s’mores.
Many girls have continued on this theme this term working towards their camp skills builder activities in the hope that we can put it all into reality with residential events being permitted later on in the year.
Den building in the woods, setting up environmentally friendly campsites and outdoor cooking are all valuable life skills.
Radlett Girlguiding explained that plans are afoot for a special golf day for Guides and Rangers later in June to be hosted free of charge by Porters Park Golf Club.
A legacy was left by the Late Jean Howell wishing to introduce more young girls into the sport, from which 60 girls will benefit.
Planning for the annual District Activity Day in the Autumn is also well underway, with climbing, circus skills and plenty more adventurous activities being on the agenda.
Girlguiding Radlett District welcomes new members and volunteers.
