Visiting Cobham Girl Guides

Last Wednesday, I dropped into meet 1st Cobham Girl Guides, run by their brilliant Leader, Helen Goddard. The Guides had originally contacted me about UK support for educational programs in some of the poorest countries around the world.
On Wednesday, I saw the Guides designing invites for their next fund-raising initiative, and then they grilled me with questions for half an hour or so. The Guides is a fabulous organisation, nurturing a sense of civic spirit, self-confidence and team skills. I always enjoy meeting up with local groups. It is a good opportunity to hear a different perspective on politics, what's going on in the world, and how they view their community. The 1st Cobham Guides were a particularly sparky bunch. I was really impressed with their attitude and curiosity. They have a great sense of humour too, so it was a lot of fun meeting them.
