    • World Guiding goes Tartan,
    • NW Region Ruby Challenge,
    • 101 years of the Great Outdoors,
    • Promise Challenge

  • done some community and fund raising events
  • Comic Relief Coffee Evening and Fashion Show,
  • serving refreshments at the Women’s World Day of Prayer service

  • A Carol Tea Party for Helplink
  • A weekend away at Waddow in February, and a week’s Camp in July
  • as well as going to the theatre to see “Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat”.


The highlight of the Year was our Ruby Camp in the Summer. We had the hottest week of the year. We had all kinds of challenges – both planned and unplanned – the supermarket having a problem with their delivery system and not delivering our £500 order! A great day out courtesy of the local farmer – butterfly catching (and releasing), climbing on a combined harvester, feeding the chickens and the lambs, washing the ponies, playing in a wheat mountain and a rope swing!



Ten of our girls started work towards their Baden Powell Challenge Badge and will continue to works towards completion next year.
