 Slimbridge Rainbow Day trip 
16 Rainbows enjoyed a lovely day out at Slimbridge Wetland Centre on Sunday 8th June. The girls were met by Luke, who showed them the frogs and toads and some other amphibians and let the girls touch a few of them as well as feed some. He then walked them over to the otters and talked to the girls about the otters. Thanks Luke! the Rainbows then enjoyed their picnic lunch before playing in the park, feeding the birds and playing in welly boot land before having an ice-cream, feeding more birds and finally a trip up to the observation tower to see the view over Slimbridge and towards Wales before visiting the shop and coming home. All of the girls had a great time, as did the adults. Thanks go to all the adults- Claire, Mike, Matt and Bob (the driver)

Saturday 28th June saw the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides participating in the annual Armed Forces day parade through the village to the School playground. We were very lucky to not be rained on, as the weather was threatening storms.
Huge THANK YOU to all the girls who took part, especially Izzy (Rainbows), Molly (Brownies) and Meagan (Guides) who carried the standards (flags) for their Guiding units.
