Top award for Charmouth Girl Guides

TWO members of the 1st Charmouth Guides have received the prestigious Baden Powell Award.

The award, named after the founder of the Scouting and Girl Guides movement, is one that few members will receive and takes a great deal of effort and commitment to achieve.

Emma Thatcher and Molly Bolton, both aged 14 and from Tatworth, near Chard, had to complete many challenges for the award, such as teach others first aid, write reports on events that they have been to and organise charity events.

They also taught the other guides to have disability awarenesss and attended a residential adventure weekend with other Guides from all over the south, to Brownsea Island, the home of Scouts and Guides.

Members of the 1st Charmouth Guides held a special party night to celebrate Emma and Molly’s success.

Debbie Thatcher from Charmouth Guides said: “We are all very proud of the girls and their journey through the guiding movement.”
