Brownies in wheelbarrows, Rainbows on hedges, and Guides on ladders – Girlguiding Cumbria South invited their members to construct a scarecrow and dress her in Girlguiding uniform, with hilarious results. The scarecrows were then displayed in gardens, house entrances and even shop windows to the delight of the passing public.
Many local girls as well as their leaders took part and also shared the images on social media. They wanted to show that Girlguiding is still happening in South Cumbria and that it is great fun. Many units have been meeting online during the recent months, with some now starting to hold small outdoor get-togethers whilst adhering to strict Covid safety rules.
6-year-old Rainbow Molly Hugo from Kendal enjoyed making her scarecrow: “I loved that she was wearing my uniform and hat and that she went up outside our house for everyone to see.”
