Members of Girlguiding in Stone certainly take current affairs very seriously and this was reflected in their recent entries for the Stone Town Carnival .
Stone District Brownies walked away with 1st Prize in the walking section of the carnival for their entry, ’Say No to Plastic’ .The girls had fashioned costumes out of black plastic bin bags and copious amounts of rubbish that would have normally gone straight in the recycling bin.
Brownie Leader, Jo Sutton, commented, ”the girls are passionate about trying not to use as much plastic and to helping the environment. As we walked along the parade we received lots of positive comments from the general public”.
Stone District Rainbows and 1st Stone Guides combined forces and paraded with their entry ‘Girlguiding in Bloom’.
District Commissioner, Anna West, said “girls of today are committed to doing their bit to help look after the environment and keeping our home town of Stone beautiful.”
