Queen’s Guide success

Hi, my name is Cerys and I’m an adult leader at 1st Chepstow Rainbows. I’ve just been awarded my Queen’s Guide Award after working towards it for the past 3 years. During this time I worked on a variety of different projects which included organising a Rainbow trip, being a first aider at a Brownie camp, volunteering in my school and an extensive research project on sports leadership. I also went on a 4 day expedition in the Brecon Beacons which was part of my gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and a challenging but enjoyable experience! The highlight of my Queen’s Guide Award was undertaking an international trip to South Korea in 2016 with a group of other girls from Girlguiding Cymru. We worked with Korean school girls and a local arts centre to renovate a market area and improve the community. We also took part in cultural activities such as staying overnight in a beautiful Buddhist monastery which was an unforgettable experience! Another part I really enjoyed was helping to organise a centenary event for the county at Llandegfedd reservoir. It was really rewarding watching the Guides and Rangers getting to know each other and really enjoying themselves. I had a great time working on my award and highly recommend it to anybody thinking of giving it a try!
