1ST Upton and Blewbury Guides

Upton and Blewbury Guide unit meets on Fridays from 7.30 to 9.00 and is the section of Girlguiding UK for girls ages 10 – 14. Being a Guide means making friends, trying new experiences and being encouraged to discover and learn in new ways. This term the girls are spending some of their meetings working on patrol badges called Go For Its, with the girls planning and running their own activities. Other meetings this term have included sign language; making bags from t-shirts as part of Waste Less Live More week; jazz dancing and enjoying the Harwell firework display. Still to come this term are Remembrance day events, a wide game out on the field in the dark, ice skating in Oxford and Christmas crafts. A highlight  was the trip to London in October to the Big Gig – a massive pop concert in Wembley Arena organised by Girlguiding just for Guides.
