Over 100 Brownies, Guides and their Leaders, together with the Trefoil Guild from Watton District Guiding celebrated the birthday of their group's patron Lord Baden Powell at Wayland Community High School last month.

Joined by the newly-appointed County Commissioner for Norfolk, Helen Green, the members held a special evening focusing on the importance of water.

The evening started with a short service, where local reverend Rod Broughall gave a short talk on water.

During the service there was a collection, which raised over £60.00 towards buying two water pumps.

Later on the girls also enjoyed a fun team game, craft activity and food from various countries around the world.

Watton District Guiding are also looking for new members.

Anyone interested to join can contact Jo Jacklin on 01953 880112 or email on jmj57@btinternet.com
