We were privileged enough to be given a slot on Sunday 2nd November, so five of us headed up into London to take part in this very special event (our 6th member was unfortunately very poorly and as you can image rather upset not to have been able to come along). It was an amazing and very moving experience - especially as we managed to finish our planting and then head around the outside of the tower for the roll of honour and last post, at the end of the day. One of our girls was even enrolled standing in the moat, by the poppies in front of the 'pouring tower. I imagine that there aren't many who will be able to say they made their promise in such beautiful place.
Here are a few pictures from our afternoon. I hope that they capture the fact that we had a wonderful experience and that it was a day that all of us were very proud to say we were involved in Girlguiding.
