Scilly’s Girl Guides To Feature On National Video

guide camp 2013Scilly’s Guides, Rainbows and Brownies will be featured in a promotional video for the guiding movement.

It was shot last week during a visit by the National Chief Commissioner, Solange Rebours.

She’s from the Channel Islands and Fiona Robson says she wanted to chat to the St Mary’s guide leaders about the difficulties facing units on the islands.

And Fiona says she got a taste of some of the challenges of Scilly life when she was fogbound both ways.

During her trip, the Chief Commissioner presented all the girls with their badges, a special Commissioner’s badge and a Road Show badge.

The guides were filmed on Tresco, Town Beach, Holgate’s Green and in the Scillonian Club.

The filmmakers also  took photos of the girls during their activity evening. The footage will be used in their Annual Review DVD and will be posted on YouTube.

Last week, during the Commissioner’s visit, the Guides group arranged a fish and chips fundraising evening at the Club, which raised £200.

It’s part of a £4,000 appeal by the group. They want to send 20 members away to Foxlease in August 2014.
