Shropshire Way Challenge

Posted by Martin Wynn

The Shropshire Way Challenge is for members of Girl Guiding Shropshire, between us, to walk the entire 200 miles of the newly way marked Shropshire Way between Thinking Day 2020 and Thinking Day 2021. You can do as much or little as you like, every step counts, and all participants can gain a badge for taking part. Some sections are easy, even wheelchair accessible, and others are much more challenging. If you don’t feel confident about taking girls out walking, then experienced leaders will be available to help. The challenge will include an I spy activity and geocaching may also be available in some sections.

See the Leaders Resource Page or contact Jo Revell Walking Adviser
jmrevell@btconnect.com 01952 882055 or 07834 673204.

“Sunrise” leap day walk

Posted by Amanda Taylor
Leap Day 2020 saw 19 early rising Shropshire Guiding members and two dogs climb the Wrekin in the dark. We renewed our promise at the top at dawn. No visible sunrise that day but it didn’t actually rain for the entirety of the walk which was a bonus this winter.As always it was cold at the top of the hill so the hot sausage sandwiches and drinks when we came down were most welcome.

As the route covers part of the Shropshire Way each participant will gain their Shropshire Way Challenge badge. Between us, we’ve already recorded 66 Guiding miles on the Shropshire Way. If you want to know more about the Challenge the information should be on the Shropshire Guiding website soon and there will be a drop-in session at County day.

Shropshire Cares, Shropshire Shares Badges

Posted by Amanda Taylor

Shropshire Cares – Shropshire Shares

This social action badge is in two sections, Shropshire cares is about being active in the community, maybe carol singing at an old peoples home or planting trees along the canal. Shropshire shares involves collecting and giving, this maybe toiletries for the Red Box Project, food for the foodbank or animal food for the cats and dogs home. Make your challenges as quirky as you want and don’t forget to share them on social media. These will allow units to take social action at all levels. Shropshire cares is about being active in the community and Shropshire shares allows you to collect and donate for a worthwhile cause – all of your girls choosing! Enjoy!!

The badges are in stock and available from the badge secretary.
