Brooch honour for Guide service
Two Ashford women have been presented with prestigious long service awards for their dedication to Girlguiding.
Volunteers Sarah LittlewoodTribe and Beckie Green were handed specially-designed brooches to honour more than 10 years of service.
Beckie, 27, is the third generation of her family to be a Brownie Guider after she took over from her mum as Brown Owl in 2010. She said: “I love to teach and see the girls achieve new life skills but knowing they will use them throughout their life is just simply wonderful.”
Sarah, a Snowy Owl, first became involved in guiding in 1990 when she joined Hothfield Rainbows. She has since worked with Lenham Rainbows and Charing Brownies.
She said: “It’s been a fun and rewarding experience – I’ve seen guiding change as the lives of girls have changed.”
