The County Arts Day saw girls from all sections and from across the County come together for a day filled with a variety of performing arts activities. These included circus skills, playing the ocarina, making puppets, playing percussion, learning to dance and doing drama.
The whole day culminated in a performance of their new found skills to a room full of very proud parents! Well done to all the girls taking part and thank you to the Arts team for putting on a great day.
UK Parliament Week ran from 12-18 November 2017 and many of our units across the County got involved. Activities included holding their own elections, debating whether Brownie uniform should stay or go (I am pleased to say they decided it should stay!), visits from local MPs, Parliament related quizzes and making shortbread Big Bens.
We were proud to see so many of our Guiding members attending Remembrance parades and services across the County. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to remember those who fell during the war.
Girlguiding Dursley District, Gloucestershire West Division, ran the local fireworks display again this year and with around 2000 people visiting the event they raised an astounding £7,000 for the local organisations involved an their chosen charity, the Gloucestershire Young Carers.
A huge congratulations to the whole of the Dursley Team and their fabulous volunteers for putting on such a great evening.
