ASR Guides win Public Acclaim!Published on 9th May, 2015
At an award ceremony held on
Thursday, 30th April in the
Pierhead Building Cardiff Bay,
All Saints’ Rhiwbina’s Guides
were presented with the
Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award
and the prestigious Baden Powell Award by Jayne Cowan and Assembly Member Mark Drakeford.
Nine of the girls won both awards, amongst them Lydia Hobbs, ASR’s acolyte.
Heartiest congratulations to all the Guides for their outstanding achievement!
They have now moved on to become members of the Senior Section of the Rangers, and would like to pay tribute to Sarah Cadman, their Guide leader, who helped and encouraged them as they prepared for the Baden Powell Challenge, and to Rose Hinnells, the leader of the Rangers, who supported and led them in their Duke of Edinburgh training. The Guides’ success would not have been possible without their enthusiastic encouragement and active involvement in these projects.
The Baden-Powell Challenge Award is the highest award a Guide can achieve.
To start the Baden-Powell Challenge you need to have:
• made your Promise
• gained at least two Guide Challenge Badges
• gained at least two interest badges.
This shows your commitment to guiding.
The Baden-Powell Challenge is divided into five zones, each containing lots of different clauses. You need to complete ten clauses in total. You should do one from each zone, then five more. These can come from any of the zones. Up to two of them can relate to Country/Region or Girlguiding initiatives.
To finish the Award you need to take part in a Baden-Powell Adventure. These are usually residential events organised by your County or Country/Region for all Guides in the area who are doing the Baden-Powell Challenge.
