On the 12th June Harrow & Pinner and Wealdstone Divisions held a joint picnic for the Queen. Around 100 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Leaders celebrated at Willow Tree. We had our own Bake Off and the girls enjoyed meeting other members of Girlguiding. There were competitions for the best decorated cakes and we also held a crown design competition.
Harrow Guides’ Winter Weekend coincided with World Thinking Day, so of course the theme was ‘International’! Activities included Chinese character designs and lanterns, Australian cookies, friendship pins, a ’round-the-world’ fashion show and Maori stick dancing, as well as plenty of games, and a night walk. We celebrated Thinking Day on the 22nd by learning about each others’ experiences of travelling and living in other parts of the world.
Around 100 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers from Harrow Town and Roxeth Districts celebrated World Thinking Day together. Activities were based around the four world centres. We made classic tourist posters of London; Mexican tissue paper bunting; learnt the dandiya stick dance from India, and for Switzerland, well the chocolate game of course! A great time was had by all, and over £100 was raised for the World Thinking Day fund.

raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to
discover their full potential and encourage them
to be a powerful force for good. We give them a
space to have fun.
