Girlguiding seniors hit the heights

Senior members of Girlguiding Anglia had a high old time when they gathered in Norfolk to mark their organisation's 40th anniversary.

President Dora George and two other chiefs kicked off the celebrations with a sponsored abseil off the tower at the girl guides' residential and activity centre in Hautbois, near Coltishall.

Their feat marked the start of a �36,000 fund-raising drive for a new abseil and climbing tower offering two different heights and a number of climbing challenge walls.

The trio were among more than 50 Girlguiding Anglia members, all of whom had made a significant contribution to the region's development over the decades, who took part in a day of reflection and celebration at the Hautbois centre, ending with birthday cake and tea.
