Girl Guides Plant Over 600 Trees

At the weekend, along with girls & leaders from Bothenhampton Guides, Charmouth Guides & West Dorset Rangers, the Broadwindsor Guides planted over 600 trees as part of the Queens canopy, by kind permission of the landowners at Downbarn Farm in Mosterton.
This also reinstated a county boundary (Dorset/Somerset) Hedgerow that was removed by previous land owners in the 1930’s.
They first learnt about the different types of trees and the benefits of planting new trees/hedges.

They worked really well, met new friends and thoroughly enjoyed hot chocolate and cake to warm them up!

Well done to all involved!

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.
