Rainbows in the pink!

TRIMLEY: Pretty as a picture, dozens of pink princesses had a bundle of fun as they celebrated 100 years of Girl Guiding.

Rainbows from the 1st and 2nd Felixstowe packs, 1st Walton, and 1st and 2nd Trimley units took part in the pink-themed afternoon of activities, dressing up to play games and take part in crafts.

The Pink Princess Party event was held at Trimley St Martin Primary School by the Colneis Division of the Guides to mark the movement’s centenary.

The Rainbows – the youngest in the movement at just five to seven – are crucial to its future and it is hoped many will continue to enjoy the activities over the years, becoming Brownies and Guides and perhaps one day leaders.

The girls took part in eight crafts, including making tiaras and wands for their costumes, pom poms, bracelets, creating princess bugs and decorating cakes.

Later they played games and had tea and ice creams.

Julie Thorogood, Rainbow Guider with the 2nd Felixstowe, said it had been an excellent afternoon.

“The Rainbows have only been a part of Guiding for a few years but we felt it was important that they celebrated the centenary, too, and in a lively and fun way. All the Guiders helped with the activities and it was a real team effort.”
