100 Years Of Guiding In The UK

Hannah, waiting with her Rainbows Unit to parade to the GuildhallThis year Guiding in the UK celebrated it's 100th anniversary and over the past year the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides countrywide have celebrated with picnics, parties and sleepovers, amongst other activities. Hannah recently went with units from our area to an indoor play centre for a party and celebration and they have all had a lovely year. The finale for the centenary celebrations was tonight, 20.10.2010 at 20:10! The units from all over Portsmouth gathered at the Guildhall to sing songs and renew their promises in front of The Lord Mayor and other guests of honor. There was a big screen showing pictures of the year long celebrations from the local area, a speech by the Lord Mayor and music and drumming - Hannah really enjoyed it. She said she felt really lucky to be a Rainbow and loved being part of it all.

Becoming a Rainbow has really meant a lot to Hannah and i'm so pleased that she was able to take part in such a special event - i have lovely memories of being a Brownie and a Guide and feel so proud that i can now see my little girl making Guiding memories of her own.

Glad Hannah enjoyed it and hope it was a bit warmer tucked away in Guildhall Square than it was on Gosport Harbour!
