Yesterday (6th Aug) 8 of us walked over Ragleth as the penultimate leg of the Shropshire Way Challenge. Finding, by pure serendipity, a most convenient vending cafe at lunch time which provided coffee and ice cream. We also had further drinks and ice cream back at the start at the Green Dragon in Little Stretton. As you can tell, the 300m slog up the hill was well worth it. This takes us up to 1888 Guiding miles so far.
Next Sunday 14th August we hope to complete the final leg which is a circuit over the Lawley Hill near Church Stretton. Meeting at All Stretton for 9:45. So far I think 10 people (9 are Shropshire Guiding members) would like to come. If anyone else would like to join us please contact me Jo Revell on 07834 673204 or on firstname.lastname@example.org
Nearly 700 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders and Volunteers from Girlguiding Shropshire celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Saturday 4th June. Everyone was given a goody bag and a commemorative badge. They all had great fun exploring the various shops, displays and trying out the old fairground rides.
8 members of Shropshire Girlguiding and one guest walked from Kempton to Craven Arms on the 16th April. It was a beautiful day and a lovely route with fantastic views. We celebrated with cake en route (thanks Debbie) and with candles and more cake! on arrival at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre as Jeanette Price and Debbie Bray have now completed both the northern loop of the way (120 miles) and the southern loop (200 miles). Jo Revell has also completed the southern loop.
We’re not stopping at that though as we are enjoying the walking too much. As a County there are still some sections of the Church Stretton loop to complete for the record and several Guiders would like to catch up some missing sections for their personal record.
The next walks are planned for Saturday 23rd April, Monday 2nd May and Monday 23rd May. If anyone would like to join us please get in touch with Jo Revell Walking Adviser.
We have now walked 680 Guiding Miles on The Shropshire Way.
Recent walks have been on Brown Clee where we did some geocaching with Martin and Jeanette Price was presented with her level 1 walking qualification. We’ve also been over the Stiperstones. North Shropshire are planning a walk near Grinshill on the 23rd October.
Over the weekend 25-26 Sept Girlguiding Shropshire held an event at Attingham Park, Shropshire for all members from the county.
There were 4 zones “Be Creative” “All About Guiding” “Fun and Games” “Adventures Outdoors” for the girls to take part in. The National Trust staff at Attingham Park gave excellent support and the trust members and visitors on the 2 days enjoyed watching the fun and friendship in the fine weather.
Whitchurch Trefoil Guild Guiding for adults officially launched on the 16th of September 2019. 10 members attended and made their promise along with Cris Jones and Muriel Rayner (representing County Trefoil).
It was agreed that next year, individual members will host a meeting once a month and they would decide the theme, activity and/or speaker for each meeting. Meeting times and venues would be announced closer to the meeting dates.
So far, there has been a commitment from 15 members, with another 5 or 6 ladies considering membership.
