Presentation Evening

On Wednesday 17th May, we celebrated our annual presentation Evening at Bowdon Rugby Club in Altrincham.


The evening was a great success with a brilliant turnout, from Trefoil Guild members to Guides and Senior Section who came along with family members. 

Awards were handed out for long service to adult members who have been in Girlguiding for many years and the younger girls received Baden Powell Awards, Chief Guide's Challenges and Arts Awards. 

Two very special awards were also presented, to members who were completely unaware they were receiving them. 
 
The evening started off with a video message from Region Chief Commisioner Julie Bell and Assistant Chief Commisioner Bekky Ashmore who were presenting an award to Ros Scott from Altrincham South Division for her commitment, service and good Guiding. The award was the Region Chief Commisioners Award, which is a real accolade.
Ros spoke of her surprise afterwards;

"I was incredibly shocked to receive this award...."

Another lady to be presented with a surprise award was our County President Pat Mayle, who was awarded the Trafford Award for all her work on the Comfort Bags scheme. 
Pat, who came up with the idea for the scheme was a well deserved recipient of the award which is given to those who show commitment to work in the local area. 
Pat had invited some of the nurses from Salford Royal Hospital, who spoke a little about the project and how thankful they were to the county for being involved.
On receiving the award, Pat said;

"The Comfort Bag scheme has been a team effort across Girlguiding Greater Manchester West since September 2015, involving all members from Rainbows to Trefoil Guild, so I was very surprised to be given the Trafford Award as an individual.  I am really proud to have been so involved and to see it spreading so far now and amazed to have received the award."


The evening was full of celebrations (and surprises!)
