Girlguiding Essex South East

All aboard for HMS Belfast

30th Oct 2017

On 13th October 20 Guides and Rangers, with 5 leaders, slept overnight aboard HMS Belfast.

After walking over Tower Bridge and taking advantage of a photo opportunity, the group boarded HMS Belfast where they spent the evening doing craft activities, watching a DVD, eating pizza and celebrating a birthday.

The next morning we learned about the history of HMS Belfast and the men (no women allowed on board in those days) who served on her. The Rangers then left the ship (after a quick selfie) whilst the Guides made a tour of the ship.

The Rangers walked to the Sky Garden where three made their promise and Emily received her Chief Guide Challenge Award.

They then continued onto Leicester Square to the Lego and M&M stores, but their highlight was spotting David Walliams walking past.

Meanwhile the Guides were also making promises and Caitlin received her BP Award.

The Guides rounded off their day by walking along the South Bank. Some took in borough market, (shopping of course) and went as far as the globe.
