Fairies and Gnomes

Fairies & Gnomes Festival, Fundraising | Community, Gumnuts, Kingston District, Teamwork & Leadership

According to the blog posts, it looks like we could do with a bit of Girl Guide representation for the last shift 2:30-4pm including a bit of help from some tall people (grown ups?) for a quick pack up of the marquee!

Guides who volunteer will be helping any little people to do the activities planned. It’s a great event to show off the leadership skills that are being developed through guiding – not to mention SO much fun!

The weather looks like it’s not going to be too uncomfortable, after all. It should be a great day.
