Girls from across March district have returned home from an exhilarating Brownie stay away at St Wendredas Church Hall.

The girls, aged seven to 10 enjoyed an action packed event with exciting challenges and adventures including malteser racing and games.

Event coordinator Sarah Benningfield said: “The stay away was a great chance for the girls to get away and enjoy each other’s company in a safe, girl-only space and a chance to meet other brownies from around the district.

“All the girls told me how much they enjoyed themselves and they can’t wait to decide what they want to do at the next district event.”

Stay away adventures like this are just part of the range of activities open to girls and young women through Girlguiding, which gives them their own space to grow in confidence, raise their aspirations and have fun.
