Local brownies and guides make Easter gardens
STUART GILLESPIE Kirkcudbright Brownies and Guides joined together for their last meeting before Easter.
They made Easter gardens out of foliage and natural materials to show the Easter story.
Daniel Rimming, the new church youth worker, went along to talk to them about Jesus’ death and resurrection and judge the best garden.
He found it hard work as the girls had all constructed wonderful gardens but awarded the Fairtrade Easter Egg to Sienna.
He said: “I liked the way she had used a coconut shell to create Jesus’ tomb.”
It was a memorable meeting for another reason as it included a promise ceremony. One Brownie, Tanya, two Guides, Carly and Molly, and the Brownie leader, Drostie all made their Guiding promise.
Guide leader Katherine said: “It was an enjoyable meeting. The girls learned about Easter in a fun and creative way and it was lovely that Brownies and Guides could make their promise at the same time.”
