Girls` Brigade

Our camp last year, at Viney Hill, was slightly later than normal, and took place over the early May Bank Holiday. The Explorers joined us for the day on Saturday, enjoying a day of organised activities, finishing with a family barbeque.

Our annual trip was a visit to West Midlands Safari Park, where we spent a very pleasant day travelling around the animal compounds, petting the goats and having a talk from one of the keepers about small animals, including a skunk an iguana and a giant cockroach. The girls were able to stroke these creatures, but most kept well away from the skunk.

Our awards evening was an emotional affair as we said goodbye to Jane, Rachel and our treasurer Kirsty. We also lost our two oldest girls, Ella has taken up a place at Exeter University, on the Falmouth campus and Hannah has decided at 15 that she needs to concentrate on her studies now that her GCSE’s are looming. Both girls joined GB when they were five. We wish them all well for the future.

We ended the year with bouncy castles and hot dogs. We all had a lovely time and there were no casualties.

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31
