A HARD-working guide from Sandford has earned a top award.

Lucy Hethrington, age 16, has scooped one of the highest honours for guides, the Baden Powell Award.

The Churchill Community School pupil achieved this after organising guide meetings, including a Diwali and an Italian evening, and ran a cooking competition.

She also held a talk about germs and keeping healthy with the 1st Sandford Rainbows, where she is now training as a young leader.

Lucy was presented her award last week by Pam Avery, who used to be her Brown Owl when she was a brownie.
