Welwyn Garden City girls have fun in the sun

A GUIDE unit camped by the seaside to mark Girlguiding’s centenary thanks to a community grant from Welwyn Hatfield Council.

The girls from the 11th WGC Guide Company spent five days in Bournemouth taking part in the usual camping skills as well as a trip to the beach.

The guides, who usually pick a campsite within Hertfordshire, also got to try archery and rock climbing as well.

The youngsters were given a grant by Welwyn Hatfield Council to cover the cost of the coach to take them to and from the site.

Guider Emily Coultas said: “We wanted to do something extra special to mark the centenary, so decided a camp by the coast would be fun for the girls.
