Shropshire Way – Update

Posted by Martin Wynn

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  jorevell1@icloud.com

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Posted by Martin Wynn

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.

Shropshire Way – Celebrations

Posted by Martin Wynn

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.
