In February 2020, 8 Guides / Rangers and 3 leaders from across Anglesey travelled to Norway for an unforgettable camping experience.
They had been invited by a group of Scouts one of the leaders met on a previous trip to Norway. After many months of planning and fundraising, they flew out to join the group. To start with they helped with the final arrangements for their adventure before travelling to a mountain cabin surrounded by snow. Activities included sleeping out in tents, games and dog-sledding.
They enjoyed a few days of sightseeing in Oslo before returning home after an amazing experience. They hope that their new friends will visit us here in Wales before too long.
No face to face meetings can take place at present. They will only start again when allowed by Girlguiding in line with Government guidance, and after risk assessments of properties and units have been completed.
However, Girlguiding has stayed active in new and imaginative ways over the past year. Many leaders have been sending out activities by post or e-mail for girls to do at home, and some of our units are meeting online. ‘Adventures at Home’ are freely available for everyone on the Girlguiding UK website.
Here on Anglesey, we held a Virtual Sleepover in November 2020 and recently launched 2nd Anglesey (Virtual) Guide and Ranger Unit which meets online. Find out more on our News page.
