On Saturday 1st July 186th St Catherine’s Guides boarded a coach to Skegness. The weather was very sunny and we spent a lovely afternoon on the beach, paddling in the sea, playing games, and having a sandcastle building competition.

That night we had a sleepover in Skegness Aquarium. We had our own guided tour, watched a film, and slept in front of the massive shark and fish tank. The girls all enjoyed their fishy experience.

On the Sunday the girls went on rides the Pleasure Beach. “I enjoyed playing in the beach and making new friends with girls from the other unit” said Guide Molly Barker, “I got very wet in the sea.”

Guide Leader Gillian Andrews said “Later this year we are going to Switzerland!”

Rainbows (aged 5-7), Brownies (aged 7-10), Guides (aged 10-14), and Rangers (aged 14-26) all meet at the Crescent Community Centre, St Catherines School, Firshill Crescent every Wednesday in term time. There are currently spaces in Rainbows, Guides and Rangers.
