We celebrated over 100 years of long service at the County Ceilidh and Awards Presentation last month. Cambridge City Division hosted the event at City Church in Cambridge.
In addition to the Long Service Awards, the County Commissioner presented two Leaders from 2nd Cottenham Rainbows with a County Brooch, the Lily. Tamsin Gammie and Sarah Ward enable a girl with additional needs to participate in Rainbows by taking their meeting to her home! Jill Hay from Bar Hill also received a County Brooch for her volunteering with Rainbows locally and in the County.
Grace Bristow and Margaret Whalley have recently completed their term as Joint County Trefoil Guild Chair. Also Clare Nathan has finished her role as County Training Adviser. So the County Commissioner thanked them all for their time and efforts in those roles.
Finally, the County Queen’s Guide Adviser presented two members with the highest award in Girlguiding, the Queen’s Guide Award. Eleanor Cornish and Fiona Llewellyn-Beard have spent three years working towards the award. They have volunteered within guiding, taken part in community action, achieved personal challenges and completed an expedition.
After the awards presentation, we began to dance. Fluidic, a Cambridge folk band, played for us and helped us to learn various steps. Most of all, everyone had a fun evening, whether they were dancing or socialising with friends old and new.
