The 1st Bo’ness Guides celebrated success when they competed at Girlguiding Forth Valley’s annual swimming competition the Grangemouth pool on Friday, March 6.
The six-strong team, made up of girls aged 10-15, competed against almost 100 girls from 20 units across Forth Valley. Although during the competition, their Leaders were nervously tallying the girls’ successes, Elaine Campbell noted “it was a bit of a shock to finally have them announced as winners”. Division Commissioner Lynne McLeod said: “This is a great achievement for the girls. We’re all are so proud of them. Although the girls were presented with the trophy on the night, they will also attend the county annual event and be formally presented by the Commissioner.”
