Girls and Leaders around the County Remember

On this Armistice Day when we remember and pay tribute to all those who died in World Wars One and Two and in every conflict since, Girls and Leaders from around Greater Manchester West have been attending services and completing community action.

Representatives from Girlguiding Sale attended the Remembrance Service held at Sale Cenotaph on Sunday 8 November. Brownies and Guides marched together with many uniformed organisations and showed their respect and pride for the people of Sale. A wreath was laid by Sale’s President, Sheila Clarke.

3rd A Brownies, 3rd Rainbows and 3rd Guides from Timperley District gathered at Timperley Methodist Church. The Rainbows paraded with their brand new flag; the flag bearer did a super job of dipping the colours.

Rainbows from 2nd Ashton South in Sale joined more than 100 soldiers, cadets, veterans and volunteers on Wednesday 4 November to collect donations and distribute poppies across the city centre for the Poppy Appeal 2015. The Rainbows were stationed at The Royal British Legion stand at the Trafford Centre and were extremely enthusiastic poppy sellers! Representatives from The Royal British Legion are also coming to their meeting to do a workshop with the girls to help them understand the importance of Armistice Day.

2nd Monton Brownies made two poppy wreaths which they laid at their Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday. They also made and decorated some wonderful poppy biscuits which the girls took home to eat!
