Girl Guides Centenary Celebration

MORE than 500 girl guides took part in a centenary camp fire party at the wind-swept Kingsdown Scout Camp at Deal for a day of making, singing and celebrating ending with a campfire on the cliff top looking out to sea.

Strange Cargo were commissioned by Guiding Kent East to create a series of workshops that engaged each guide in a number of memorable activities, leading to an evening celebratory event to commemorate the occasion.

All ages, from the youngest Rainbows to the Senior section, enjoyed craft workshops and each created an aluminium star engraved with wishes for the future that were attached to the lantern builds for the finale.

A choir and procession kicked off the evening and the cliff top with alight with sparkling lights and lanterns to create an incredible end to the centenary year..
