HUNDREDS of the region's guides came together in Highbridge last week to celebrate the end of the movement's centenary year, and welcome in the next 100 years.
Youngsters and leaders from the Mendip Division were treated to a spectacular fireworks display and a disco at the Oaktree Arena, and were linked by video-link to Chief Guide Liz Burnley and other parties across the UK.
The division, which includes the Axbridge and Highbridge district groups, raised a total of £1752 for the ‘Send a cow’ appeal, which is aiming to provide animals for communities in Africa.
