Summer Gig a Great Success

Girls from all over Greater Manchester West have returned home from an excellent weekend trip to Ashley.

The girls, aged 11-18, enjoyed exciting adventures including zorbing, gladiator jousting and zip wire, followed by an evening of entertainment from local band Red Tape and Kareoke.

Megan Thomson tweeted “Had an amazing time last night at the guide gig, have a new favourite band @Red_TapeBand, BRILLIANT SONGS!, you guys were amazing!"

The group’s organiser, Eleanor Stracey, said: “The summer gig was a great chance for the girls to get away and enjoy each other’s company in a safe, girl-only space.

“All the girls told me how much they enjoyed themselves and they can’t wait to decide where they want to go next and plan another adventure.”

Adventures like this are just part of the range of activities open to girls and young women through Girlguiding, which allow them to grow in confidence, raise their aspirations and have fun in a safe, girl-only space.
