Girl Scouts

A quick straw poll of the Bath WI committee revealed three who had been ejected from the scouting movement (notably for adding soap flakes to the cake mix!) and one who had never quite recovered from wanting a badge for every significant event in life.

For all these frustrated girl guides, we’re going outdoors this month. Who knows, we may even start handing out badges! Children and husbands are welcome – the more the merrier. The intrepid amongst you should bring your camping kit – we have permission to camp in the grounds of the lovely Paragon School in Bath.

Things to look forward to: a craft workshop in a yurt, singing (optional), campfires, slightly charred food, smores (mmmm).

summer woodland

Seating is on logs and the gathering place is in woodland, so do come prepared.

You’ll need to bring provisions: camping kit if you’re camping, food and drink (no bar, so bring a bottle), clothing suitable for woodland terrain (leave high heels at home) and possibly something to sit on to avoid spending the evening with a damp derrière.

Courage ladies! Whether you are a dedicated camper or entirely committed to your creature comforts, get your wellies on and join the fun for an evening.
