Earlier this year a presentation evening was held in the Shire Hall, Monmouth for the Girlguiding Gwent members who successfully gained their gold Duke of Edinburgh Award during 2013. The girls gave a resume of the highlights of their own personal D of E journey and the skills they had gained along the way. Local community dignitaries were delighted to be asked to present the awards to the girls. Now the girls (and no doubt their proud families) are awaiting that important invitation to St. James’ Palace for the official presentation event. Well done to all who completed the award and enjoy your day in London as you have all worked hard to achieve it!
