Unit Report 2020

We have taken part in a number of challenges throughout the year. We completed a journey into Europe Challenge. For this we sampled different fruits, attempted to make the Eiffel tower from marshmallows & spaghetti and created our own pizzas. As we had new girls we did some Ice Breaker games and learnt the Phonetic and Manual Alphabets. We took part in Guides Get Muddy at Holcombe Moor Army Training Camp. This event includes obstacles, challenges and lots of mud.

Alex, Charlie, Faith & myself have been very lucky to be selected to go to the Guide house in Mexico in 2020. So we have attended a couple of residentials held a Mothers Day afternoon tea, a Plant Sale & breakfast. We have also volunteered at Oldham, Marple & Heywood Park Runs.

In July we went to Height Nook Activity Centre Darwen. Our theme for the week was Bugs. The girls completed crafts, games and activities relevant to the theme, including Bee Your Best Challenge Badge. As we were inside we made the most of the oven by baking our own biscuits, cakes & scones.

We finished off the year with a PJ party, a visit to Oldham Coliseum Panto Jack & the Beanstalk and 3 new Guides made their promise. (Hayley Cowling)
