Afternoon Tea to celebrate 100 years!


2016 has been a very busy year for 1st Stone Guides as they celebrate their 100th birthday! The Guides decided they wanted a party to celebrate and what better way than to host an Afternoon Tea Party!

The girls planned and organised the event themselves, making decorations and preparing food. Amongst the guests invited were former 1st Stone Guides and Leaders and current Guiders in Stone. The Guides enjoyed being hostesses, serving food and drinks, before gathering around the cake to blow out the candles! The event was made even more special with 5 new Guides making their Guide promise. The wonderful occasion was thoroughly enjoyed by all and it was lovely to see so many people there reminiscing about their time in Guiding.

The Guides have done a number of exciting activities already this year including bell-boating, climbing, outdoor cooking and taking part in the County Challenge Event ‘Wipe out or Win’ where they came runners up. The girls are looking forward to continuing their celebrations in the new term…so here’s to the next 100 years!
