There was a surprise in store, last week at Essex International Jamboree, for members of Essex West when the Chief Guide, Valerie Le Valiant, presented awards.
Ellie Watson and Jenny Kingston both from Brentwood Division were presented with their Queen's Guide Awards.
Caroline Peters, from Brentwood East, received her 30 year service award.
Breakfast time at Essex International Jamboree and Chris Skinner, Our County Commissioner, presents Baden-Powell Awards to Lilliana Folan and Sophie Chandler both of 3rd Hutton Guides.
73 members of Brentwood East District went to PGL Windmill Hill from 1st to 3rd May 2015. They took 23 Guides, 36 Brownies, 3 Young Leaders and 11 Adults. It was the first residential event they have done jointly as a district for many years and they are grateful for a County Empowerment Grant to help it happen.
