Guides from the county have enjoyed a night of indoor camp fire singing with residents of a Cramlington care home.

Guides from 1st Cramlington Guide unit and 6th Cramlington Guide joined Harwood Court Cramlington, to sing some campfire songs, and talk about their time in the guides.

Leaders from 1st Cramlington Guide Unit, which is celebrating its 60th birthday this year, lead the singing.

Elizabeth Golding, leader of 1st Cramlington, said: “It was lovely to see the young guides talking so easily with the residents, and it was great when the ladies reminisced about their childhood when they were in the guides.”

A range of activities are open to girls and young women through Girlguiding, which gives them their own space to grow in confidence, raise their aspirations and have fun.
