The Guiding Idols event really lived up to my expectations! It was a lovely afternoon.
The 6 of us (5 idols and me) met up in Bury so that we could travel, to Region HQ in Preston, together. Susan Wint played ‘mum’ and drove us in her people carrier… it was like a proper school trip (although we didn’t swap sandwiches as soon as we’d set off, nor did we have a sing-song!).
There were non-alcohol cocktails and Prosecco on arrival and we were greeted by Julie Bell, Region Chief Commissioner and her two Assistants, Bekky Ashmore and Mel Price. There was a quiz to do, that encouraged us chat to people we didn’t know, a thank you to write to the girls who chose the idols, a memory tree to leave messages on and a glass to decorate – it wouldn’t be a guiding event without an ice-breaker and a craft!
We enjoyed a delicious buffet, and then the Guiding Idols plaque for 2015 was unveiled by Region President, Suzie Reynolds.
Thank you Gill Leach, Sue Lumley, Katie Haigh, Michelle Wood and Susan Wint for being such terrific company!
