Leader, Emma House had this update on what they have all been up to:
We have been meeting via Zoom rather than doing what we do best but that’s not a bad thing! We have had so much fun! (There is a lot less clearing up for us leaders that’s for sure 😉).
We have been making indoor rockets, clay creatures, edible Houses of Parliament, completed Taskmaster challenges, chatted and laughed – laughed a lot!!
The laughing 😂 is what’s making the difference, everything is so strange for the children at the moment. The social life they are used to is hugely restricted so if we can as leaders continue to try and offer a piece of normality in the best way we can then we have done our job well.
The smiles say it all!” – Emma House.

Girl Guides Visit Xtreme Falconry

Yesterday, Girl Guide leader, Emma House took her girls to visit Xtreme Falconry, just outside Dorchester.

They were fortunate enough to have Bob Dalton give up his time to speak to the girls and present them with an educational pack in support of Project LuggerEmma commented: “One of the many things I love about being a guider is being able to take the girls out to experience new things. The [Ballam] family really were so accommodating and gave the girls a fantastic experience. We certainly didn’t expect such an hands on experience! Amazing! Thank you! And thank you to Bob Dalton from Project Lugger for explaining the project and it’s importance, we hope we can follow its progress.

Broadwindsor Girl Guide Rescues Sister From West Bay Harbour

Broadwindsor would really like to give praise to a young Girl Guide who on Saturday, 29th 2020 August rescued her sister after she fell off the slipway at West Bay and into the harbour.

The 2 girls had wandered from the pier, where they were crabbing with their family to fill their bucket with water. On doing so the younger girl slipped and fell into the harbour.  She was unable to touch the bottom and also unable to reach to get up out of the water. Her sister, Eleanor (from 1st Broadwindsor Guides) called for help and proceeded to try and get her sister out of the water. Eleanor said “It was scary because my sister went under a few times but I knew that I had to try and pull her up out of the water or she could drown.”  Thankfully Eleanor was able to pull her younger sister to safety by the time her family arrived to help.

Emma House (Leader 1st Broadwindsor Guides) said ‘ I am incredibly proud of Ellie’s quick thinking, accidents happen and if she had not remained calm it could have been a different story

🙂 Well done Eleanor! You should be very proud! 🙂
