A group of 35 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and their leaders from Gayton joined hundreds of fellow Girlguiding members at Alexandra Palace in London on Saturday 20th February for the Spark event which kicked off celebrations for 100 years of The Senior Section.

The girls stepped out of their comfort zone and took on adventurous activities such as bouldering, bungee trampolining and zorbing.

 “I enjoyed many of the activities at Spark. My favourite was the Photo Booth, we all put graffiti on our picture and they printed a copy off for us.”Amelia S, aged 13

“There was something for everyone to do and enjoy, I liked the Photo Booth, and it was a good way to express friendship.” – Becky, aged 13 

A Rainbow, said “It was good; I got help from a friend ‘cos I got stuck!” Ruby, Raibows

Amelia P, 13 liked the Medical Mavericks where she used real life medical equipment and enjoyed rocking in the Silent Disco.

“We got to do loads of activities, I had a really fun day and I really enjoyed it.” – Alice S, aged 12

All of the leaders agreed that the day was a great success. Everyone was shattered by the time we left London, but even the Rainbows had a go at everything.

Nicky, a Brownie Leader, who insists she is just over 5 feet, liked the magic mirrors best – “Look! I’ve never been so tall!”

Lauren Greengrass, age 14, renewed her promise at the event to Gill Slocombe, former Chief Guide.  Lauren has been a member of Girlguiding since the age of 5 when she joined as a Rainbow.  She has progressed through all the sections and finally reached Senior Section.

Being a member of Girlguiding has given Lauren many amazing opportunities including two trips to Adelboden where she was presented with her BP Award last year, took part in an ICE trip to Belgium, had an amazing time at Norjam 2014, so is looking forward to attending EssexJam in the Summer of 2016.
