You will see a calendar item for the Radley Flower Show.  This is not a Guide event, but we always enter the girls in the childrens section, so you are welcome to come along and see how they did.  Any prize certificates will be gathered and distributed at our prize ceremony.
This should another term where we can meet in the hall at All Saints, still with some enhanced cleaning and hand sanitiser, but without all the extra Covid-19 rules to follow.  We are planing the Summer term to be back to normal and we are planning some meetings outside, away from the hall.  Jackie is the only qualified Leader in the unit, with Andrew as Unit helper  It would be great to find another person(s) who would like to join our Guiding family once a week in term time.  All volenteers are welcome, as long as they don't mind having a DBS check, either as a Unit Helper, or to train to become a Unit Leader like Jackie.  Girlguiding have updated the age range for Rainbows, so we may be inviting some older 4 year olds to join us, if they feel ready.
