GIRL guides got the chance to quiz a Mercury reporter on what it is like to be a journalist.
The 24th Weston-super-Mare Guides had a visit from reporter Briana Millett on Thursday, and the girls told her about the Little Yellow Duck Project they are working on.
The scheme aims to create hand-crafted gifts in a bid to raise awareness of blood, bone marrow, organ and tissue donation.
The guides, who were given a grant from this year’s Go Kids Go! scheme, then asked Briana about what it is like to work as a journalist.
They quizzed her on how to source stories and what qualifications they would need if they wanted to be a reporter. They were also eager to find out how to meet deadlines and how the paper reports breaking news.
