Five Guides from 1st Duns Guides recently received their Baden-Powell Challenge Award - the highest award a girl can achieve in the Guide section.
It is personally challenging and involves sustained effort over a period of time.
The girls have taken part in a variety of activities over the past year to complete the ten clauses required for the award: running a games night for younger girls; a relaxation session for the older girls; completion of a number of interest badges; extending existing hobbies; researching the life of a child in a Developing Country: and fundraising activities such as bake sales, collating a cookbook, theatre reviews, plus one of the girls gave a stunning display of ballet.
Taking part in Baden-Powell Adventure is also required and three of the girls went to the north of England for a weekend adventure while the other two headed for Stirling.
The successful Guides - Susanna, Isla, Naomi, Lauren and Marnie - were presented with their Baden-Powell Challenge Awards by unit leader and County Commissioner, Eileen McLean and most are now Rangers.
