Hindsbury Blossoms and Brownies awarded
THE HINDSBURY Primary School guiding unit has a long history of excellence so the group decided in 2012 that it was fitting to recognise this with an in-house award ceremony.
Three years later, the tradition of excellence continues as does the ceremony, which took place at the school on Sunday.
“Our girls not only excel at badge work but quite a few achieve the highest award for blossoms and brownies – that of the Barbados Blossom and the Barbados Brownie Award – given by the Girl Guides Association of Barbados. We wanted to give our brownies tribute before they go off to secondary school as well as our blossoms,” said guider Juliana Wickham.
Wickham said the group took part in such activities as hiking, camping, sleepovers, heritage tours and more and was a worthwhile entity for corporate Barbados to support.
“It would be nice if a company were to adopt the group which would make things easier for us financially,” she said. (CA)
