2nd Billingshurst Guides find new skills in lockdown

Girlguiding introduced a new programme at the start of September 2019; we have been exploring the new awards and badges since then.  During the lock down period we have been unable to have face to face guiding, so we have encouraged the girls to achieve interest badges for their Gold Award independently at home.  The work the girls have produced has been amazing; the most popular badges have been Confectionery, Photography, Upcycling, Mixology and Natural Remedies.   We are now having zoom meetings to enable a bit of social contact and routine again and keep doing the fun guiding activities the girls love.  So far we have been doing quizzes, learning sign language and having a long awaited catch up with the girls. 

 

Alice has turned a metal shelf unit and tin cans into a fabulous strawberry planter which is now producing yummy fruit for her family.  Evelyn has turned an old skirt into a new stylish bag.  Following on from Evelyn’s success of bag making, she has made more bags and sold them to friends and family raising money for her favourite charities.  Maddie used scraps of material to make a quilt and Hannah turned old tin cans into useful stationary pots.

 

Hannah has made kiwi lip scrub for the Natural Remedies badge and body butter which is the best hand cream I have used in lockdown!  Many of the girls have been making some yummy cakes including fudge, chocolate tiffin, truffles and macarons.
