Guide camp fun

REDCLIFFE Bay Girl Guides returned to Foxlease in The New Forest for their annual guide camp this year.

The girls, aged 11-14, packed in plenty of activities ranging from swimming and walking to raft building and staging a musical.

Rain stopped play on the last night when the traditional campfire evening had to be abandoned, but quick-thinking leaders moved the girls into a huge party tent for cocoa and a sing-a-long to make up for it.

Leader Liz Howells said: “The girls had a great time and it was nice to see the 14-year-olds supporting the younger guides, helping them with their cooking and cleaning up.”
