2nd Norton Canes Rainbows, Brownies and Guides have taken over a disused plot of land from their parish council and since June have created a garden area to commemorate 100 years of Girlguiding Staffordshire.
In June they held a working party picnic with all the girls and their families and were pleased with what they achieved. They created a Rainbow planting bed, bug hotel, campfire planter, fairy tree and as fenced area. They have used the area over the summer for some of their meetings and have carried out their very first Guide Promises around the campfire planting area.
They have had some lovely feedback from the residents in Norton Canes and have had advertising in the local parish magazine.
A couple of weeks ago they formally opened the garden with all the girls, their families, parish councillors and people involved in the project. They will continue to develop the garden over the next few years and are being entered into the Best Kept Village award next year! They have big plans for the area and are in the process of planting hedges and lots of bulbs.
The parish council have put in a lovely sign to commemorate 100 years of Girlguiding Staffordshire.
