Do you still have badges for the Waterways Challenge - this would fit perfectly with a residential event that I'm planning at Paxmead, and the Borwnies would love it. I'd need 30 badges... Fingers crossed, Alison

Quack wrote on Kim Lorraine's profile.
I can't help with a badge but if you haven't read 'How the Girl Guides won the war' I would recommend it. From that it may inspire a series of challenges and activities that Guides used during the war for the national good. At the end of each one you could read the section of the book and explain how those skills helped at the time. Maybe ask your local Trefoil if any of the older ladies that may have been Guides.
Guide leader with a growing unit. Looking for inspiration!
Hi I’m trying to find a badge for my guides to help them learn the role of guiding during the world wars. The aim being that they may feel that remembrance parade is relevant to them
