Shropshire Way Autumn Walk

Posted by Martin Wynn

A group from Shropshire Guiding met up with 2 leaders and 4 Rangers from Montgomeryshire on the 13th November and had a lovely walk from the Stiperstones to Bishops Castle. The trees were golden, the scenery fantastic, the funghi interesting, the company delightful and the random elephants quirky! The Rangers walked much faster than the adults but were very good about waiting for us.

We have now completed 925 Guiding miles. More walks are being planned so if you’d like to join one do get in touch with Jo Revell the walking advisor to find out more.

NHS Trust Presentation

Girlguiding Shropshire met with Julia Clarke, Director of Public Participation, to present Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust with 2 rainbows created at our ‘Together At Attingham’ event in September.

The presentation was on the behalf of our young members and the public who took part in creating these beautiful rainbows to give our eternal thanks to the NHS for being there for us all during the pandemic and everyday.
