Willingham Guides took part in their village It’s a Knockout event on Sunday 13th July. The event was held to raise funds to redevelop the village playing field recreation ground with enhanced landscaping to create a recreational area for the Willingham community that will address the play needs of all children and young people aged 0-18. When complete, it will deliver an inclusive pathway of play to foster imagination, activity and social cohesion.
The team of ten Guides had lots of fun competing against eleven other youth teams from the village and surrounding area, winning three out of the six games in the heats which earned them a place in the final. Unfortunately their lack of skills at throwing inflatable fish through hoops let them down and they came fourth overall, but they all enjoyed the experience. The final total raised on the day is yet to be confirmed, but it was more than £2,000.
