Brooch hon­our for Guide ser­vice

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.”
