County training weekend

Late September saw Girlguiding Gwent moving up to Broneirion, mid Wales, for the annual leader training weekend. The theme of the weekend was ‘shaken not stirred’ and we truly were! Science activities, using digital media and social media, the outdoors, games, crafts and outdoor cooking were all on offer. On Saturday afternoon the leaders had a wide variety of activities to choose from including archery, zorbing, a local walk, outdoor cooking, geocaching, orienteering, a walk with a difference. Something for everyone. Later  we enjoyed a very sociable evening meal took part in a James Bond quiz, singing, and a night time game.

Great fun was had by all, brains came away packed with new ideas for units and experiences were shared.  In 2015  the weekend is in June – so watch out for booking information early in the New Year!

Zorbing was something not available to most leaders when they were growing up and it proved a very popular activity. After all, you need to know about these things to offer the girls….!

Craft ideas are always welcome and provide some gentle light relief and the chance to catch up with old friends. What concentration!
