Members of Girlguiding get many opportunities to travel the World. Most recently, the local Ranger unit had a camping trip to Iceland and a group from Cumbria had a very exciting trip to India. Here is a short account from Kate Moody, a young leader at 2nd Keswick Guides and 2nd Cockermouth Rainbows.


This year, I was given the opportunity along with 13 other people to go for three weeks to India. For two of those weeks, I was at Sangam which is a Girlguiding and Girl Scout World Centre. The first day there, we did craft activities to make it fun and so they could get used to us. On day two and three we then started teaching them English. In the morning, we had Standard 4 (year 3) and then in the last morning, we had Standard 3 (year 2) where we split them into groups and had different activities around the hall, we had; body parts, animals, a story, clothing and shopping. Then in the afternoons we had Standard 1 (Reception) and Standard 2 (year 1) in which we taught them "in", "out", "up", "down", "left", "right" and numbers. We also met the local Guides that met on a Sunday in Sangam and they taught us some Bollywood dancing and we taught them some of our songs and actions like YMCA and Cha Cha Slide. In the last week, we explored the North of India visiting Jaipur, Delhi and Agra.


We have groups of Rainbows (age 5 to 7), Brownies (age 7 to 10), Guides (age 10 to 14) and Rangers (age 14 to 18). Any girls or adult interested in joining us should visit www.girlguiding.org.uk/joinus

The Fellowship of Hill, Wind and Sunshine choir. TASTE OF THE PAST


A very special year of First World War commemorations culminates in October, with the final event in the National Trust’s ‘Songs on the Summits’ series and a last chance to visit the emotive ‘Where Poppies Blow’ exhibition at Cockermouth’s Wordsworth House and Garden.


Over the past few months, in a marathon act of remembrance, the Fellowship of Hill, Wind and Sunshine choir has sung on top of nine mountains, including Scafell Pike. They have walked more than 25 miles and climbed over 3000 metres to celebrate the ‘Great Gift’ of 14 Lakeland summits as permanent memorials to the fallen.


On Saturday 13th October, the choir will mark the end of the project with a live performance at a unique singing picnic at Peace How in Borrowdale.


It promises to be a day like no other, so why not pack a sandwich and something to sit on, put on your walking boots and head down the valley to join in or simply listen?


The event, which takes place from 11.30am to 2.30pm, is free but places are limited, making booking essential. Find out more, including how to get there (there is no parking nearby) and reserve tickets, at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/borrowdale-and-derwent- water.


‘Where Poppies Blow’ marks 100 years since the end of the First World War by celebrating the role of the natural world in sustaining our troops through the horrors of battle.


Guest curated by historian, farmer and prize-winning author John Lewis-Stempel, it reveals the importance of the British countryside and sense of place as an incentive for men to join up, the solace nature and gardening provided in the trenches and the discomfort of living too close to nature.


The exhibition is open from Saturday to Thursday, 11.00am to 4.00pm, until Sunday 27th October, and entry is free with admission to poet William’s childhood home.


To round off your visit, pop up the café and present an original copy of the Wordsworth House advert on this page to enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee with your food order.
