Royston district girl guides were invited to showcase their movement to the mayor at a civic service ceremony.

Members reflected on girl guiding in Royston with mayor Victoria Hulstrom-Allen, who has chosen the association as her charity of the year.

District commissioner Claire Walkiden said: “Girl guiding in Royston is still very active with units for all the age ranges.

“Rainbows join at five years of age and continue until they are seven when they can move to brownies.

“They can then progress to guides and after this to the senior section until they’re 26.

“There is also an active Trefoil Guild that is for all women, this group meets once a month and enjoy many activities including talks and meals.

“All sections are always looking for new members, both children and adults.”
