Lambourn Girl Guides/Brownies

There has been a Guide Company in Lambourn for many years. Here are some of the historic pictures of Guide activities dating back to the 1950's.

Please let us know if you can add any names to the individuals or add any further facts to any of the following photos:

Every 3 years the Girl Guide movement holds a World Conference and in 1950 it took place in England, at Oxford. Messages of friendship in the form of Friendship Scrolls were carried from the furthest corners of the UK, through every county of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and handed to the delegates at the Conference, who in turn carried them back to their own countries.  Egypt was the final destination of the Scroll which travelled through Berkshire.
