 Laurel Award for Andrea Scriven

Congratulations to South Yorkshire Vice President Andrea Scriven on being receiving the Laurel Award!

Andrea currently lives in Northumberland and was presented with the award on Tuesday evening at a surprise ceremony.


Below is an account from Anthea Goodman who attended the presentation:

We had a lovely evening at Andrea’s Laurel presentation. We  “hid” in a side room while Andrea came into the HQ. Andrea has no idea and was very surprised.  The Laurel Award was presented by Alison Gordon, Chief Commissioner for Girl Guiding North East England. Allison Graydon, Northumberland Chief Commissioner presented Andrea with a colourful bouquet of flowers.

We took along a York Minster Rose and plant pot from South Yorkshire Girl Guiding and also personal gifts from ourselves.
There was Judith Staniforth, Sue Loy, Pauline Heminsley and myslef from South Yorkshire. Andrea was so very pleased and very much appreciated our attendance and the lovely gifts.  The evening followed with a wonderful buffet .

40 volunteers from South Yorkshire enjoyed a training weekend at Waddow Hall.  We had a fabulous team of trainers in Jan, Ruth Rebecca and the training sessions focused on the new programme with, amongst other activities, volunteers having the opportunity to try out some of the Skills Builder Activities for themselves.  There was also time to share ideas and meet new people and on Saturday evening teams were challenged to crack codes as part of an "Escape Room" style activity!
