GAYN­DAH’S Girl Guides cel­e­brated a year of achieve­ments at their Christ­mas party.

Ge­or­gia Lai­dler proudly ac­cepted her Ju­nior BP Award, the first of three avail­able awards, while elder sis­ter Alexis re­ceived her Emer­gency 3 and Boat­ing 3 as a re­quire­ment for the BP Award.

The Baden Pow­ell / Be Pre­pared awards recog­nise achieve­ments in ar­eas such as prom­ise and law, out­doors, ser­vice, guid­ing tra­di­tions, world guid­ing and pa­trol sys­tems.

Ni­cole Dakin, Zoe Rolls and Ge­or­gia, who ded­i­cated ser­vice hours to the com­mu­nity, were con­grat­u­lated on their Ser­vice Flash 2 badges.

After giv­ing a con­cert to fam­ily and friends, the 18 guides formed a horse­shoe to thank com­mu­nity mem­bers for their new kitchen and hut main­te­nance.

Owen and Denise Sav­age helped to re­move the old kitchen from the guide hut, be­fore their do­na­tion of a newer kitchen was in­stalled by Col Driver.

Fin­ish­ing touches to the kitchen in­cluded a new tile splash­back from Er­rol Ash­ford and in­te­rior paint thanks to the Gayn­dah Mitre 10 team.

Peter Dakin was thanked for go­ing “over and beyond” for hut main­te­nance, and Bur­nett Ho­tel, Bur­nett River Ra­dio and the Gayn­dah De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion re­ceived thanks for their gen­er­ous do­na­tions to the club.
