Guides run a Diwali evening for Brownies

Four Guides from Waterbeach ran a Diwali evening for the local Brownies as part of their Baden Powell challenge badge.

During the meeting the Brownies tried sari wrapping, rangoli and mendhi patterns as well as a Diwali quiz. The girls also tasted traditional food & drink such as coconut burfi and Diwali fruit punch.

Roella, one of the Guides who helped to run the evening for her Baden Powell Challenge award said “I really enjoyed the evening and it’s cool to help the younger generation of guides.”
