Guides Thinking Day saving the planet!
7:20am Wednesday 7th March 2012 in Sutton
More than 120 members of Girlguiding in Worcester Park attended a ‘World Thinking Day’ event last week with a sustainability theme. Girls aged between 5 and 15 from all sections of Girlguiding (Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section) together with their Leaders carried out various tasks; enjoying craft activities and playing games all with the aim of ‘We can save our planet’.
The girls made recycled plant pots and planted tomato or pepper seeds to grow and enjoy in the summer, made dominos with an environmental theme from recycled paper, cooked pancakes on tin cans and ate a lunch of locally sourced food to reduce our carbon footprint.
They also enjoyed the good weather and played games.
World Thinking Day on 22nd February is when members of Girlguiding throughout the world remember all members in other countries as their founders Lord and Lady Baden Powell celebrated their birthday on that day.
