I am still reeling in amazement from the incredible Annual Review evening.
I came well prepared for the Commissioners retirement and regarded the evening as theirs, but some people had other ideas as to how it should go which changed my plans and humbled me considerably.
The enormous warm friendship and camaraderie which I have received from Gloucestershire Girlguiding over 25 years is something which can only be felt, but I know that I have received more from all of you than I can possibly have given.
You have always been so welcoming and everything has been fun - I have loved it all and am going to miss the contacts with you. I have appreciated the lovely cards which I have received, and last years' 90th birthday cards flowers and presents took my breath away - I loved all the cards so thoughtfully put together by Brownies and Guides and still have the pile which I can enjoy on miserable days.
My affection and respect for members of Girlguiding Gloucestershire with their varied abilities knows no bounds - abilities which they use in a most professional way albeit they are total volunteers who still find time for their families, husbands’, partners, careers and other responsibilities.
If I have one regret, it is that I didn't get to know you all and work with you sooner
My grateful thanks to you all for a wonderful experience and for the marvellous array of gifts which came my way that evening.
Long may Girlguiding Gloucestershire grow and flourish.
