Highlights at Foxlease were meeting new people, being away from home and learning different activities.

All the Guides have been members of Girlguiding for some years and were presented with their Awards by the former leader of 1st Ventnor Guides Julie Hudleston.

Jennie Carleton leader of 1st Ventnor said “The girls loved helping with the Brownies and all three absolutely loved the BP Challenge Weekend at Foxlease.”
