Four teenagers have received the highest award a Guide can achieve.

Lily Dwyer, Evie Fountain, Rhian Boyle and Megan McGarrity, of 4th Stamford ChristChurch Guides, have all completed the Baden Powell Challenge Award.

Three of the girls were presented with their badges and certificates during a special guiding event in Stamford on Sunday.

To complete the challenge the 14-year-olds had to earn two interest badges and two challenge badges, organise themed nights for members of their group and complete 10 challenges based on healthy lifestyles, global awareness, relationships, diversity and discovery. The girls also attended an adventure weekend. Lily, Evie and Rhian received their awards during an event to celebrate Thinking Day.

Girls from across Stamford, Wittering and Ryhall took part in the celebrations at Stamford Queen Eleanor School on Sunday to mark the birthday of the founders of guides and scouts, Lord and Lady Baden Powell.

The rainbow, brownie and guide groups took part in a range of craft activities before lighting candles for guides across the world.

Welland Division commissioner Karen Armstrong said: “It was great to see so many units in attendance and lots of happy rainbow, brownie, guide, senior section and leaders’ faces enjoying themselves together with others.”
