Units Enjoy Olympic-Themed ‘On Your Marks’ Badge Fun
39th Greenock Guides had a very enjoyable night taking part in lots of Olympic activities. The patrols worked in countries: Great Britain, Greece and Spain. Their first challenge was to make an Olympic torch and perform an opening ceremony. Next they had to make the Olympic Rings out of biscuits and coloured icing. This was really messy but the Guides all voted it very yummy! The girls then took part in lots of relay games before performing a synchronised swimming show and building a human pyramid. The last task of the Guide Olympics was a welly throwing competition to determine who the winner overall was. The winners were presented with gold medals on homemade podiums. Everyone had a fun night.
1st Larkfield Rainbows made multi-coloured streamers to use in a dance routine they choreographed themselves as part of the On Your Marks Olympic Challenge Badge. The girls enjoyed performing the dance for the Brownies who rewarded their hard work by giving them a standing ovation!
20thA Greenock Brownies had great fun decorating biscuits in the colours of the Olympic Rings and the flags of other countries as part of the On Your Marks Olympic challenge badge.

Gourock District Enjoy A Funworld Session -- Gourock District Brownies and Guides went along to Funworld last week to raise funds for some Gourock Guides’ and leaders’ international trips during the summer. The Brownies and Guides had great fun bouncing, sliding and riding motorbikes with everyone having lots of fun. A number of leaders were also spotted on the giant slide!
Ellis, Katy, Abbie, Beth and Sarah from 4th Gourock Guides made their promise for the first time as Guides while sliding down the giant slide! Certainly an original way to make your promise as a Guide and a day they will remember. Thanks to Norma and Irene for organising this fun activity. Click for more photos

Workshop Available From Speak Up Inverclyde -- A group of young people from Speak Up Inverclyde, with the support of Aileen McEwan from Inverclyde Council Youth Work Services, have taken part in a peer education training programme on ‘No Knives Better Lives’ and are now in the position to develop their own workshop which will be a fun and informative around a topical issue that is currently very relevant in Inverclyde. They would like to deliver this workshop (about an hour) to Guides and Scouts. It will hopefully be available after the summer break. The session can contribute towards the Community Action Badge and Streets Ahead, Team Building and Take Action Go For It challenges (with a small amount of further action on their own) and is also mapped to the Curriculum for Excellence. If any Guide Leader would be interested in finding out more about this workshop, then contact District Commissioners or e-mail guidenotes.greenock@gmail and the information letter will be forwarded to you.
