Leader Amy learns to narrowboat

Brownie Leader Amy Dyson has just gained her RYA Inland Helmsman certificate during a leaders’ narrowboating weekend with members of Girlguiding Cambridgeshire East.

“Narrowboating was completely new to me, but the weekend was great fun. I had a real sense of achievement being the only one on the boat as we went through the lock on the way home.  I’m looking forward to being able to share my new skills with my Brownies and would recommend the experience to other leaders”, commented Amy.

Other leaders chose to sample the skills of decorative Canal Art while others made Survival Bracelets to assist with fundraising for an overseas Guiding adventure to Switzerland. There was some fine dining at a local restaurant on the Saturday evening.
