Girl guides rewarded for year’s efforts
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.
