It was a pleasure to welcome the girls, leaders and parents from the Rochedale Girl Guides on 8th September 2013.
The weather was sunny and coupled with a sunny feeling amongst us all the afternoon proved to be a winner. The girls were led on guided tour of the garden. It was great to experience the responses from the girls and I would reckon that there may have been a future horticulturist or two in the group.
The afternoon tea provided by the members of Rochedale Community Garden was well received by the girls. The afternoon was rounded off with the girl guides bringing their own supplies to build a scarecrow as a lasting memory of their visit. Baden-Powell would have acknowledged, I am sure, that the Rochedale Girl Guides came with his words resonating – BE PREPARED!!! as they built the scarecrow!!
