Penrice Guides at the Cornwall Show

Last week, Girl Guides from 6th St Austell and 1st Mevagissey Guides represented the school at the Royal Cornwall Show, as part of the Messenger Service.

The girls spent three long days working extremely hard and carried out a variety of responsible tasks including being ‘Show hosts’, collecting and delivering results, showing VIPs to their seats and running the flower crèche for the public.

Mrs Avery, Leader 1st Mevagissey Guides and Mum to Alice Avery in Year 9, said “Over 1000 plants were taken in for safe keeping whilst the owners enjoyed the show and all were safely returned to the owners – despite some plants being large and prickly! The girls received many plaudits for their polite and efficient manner throughout all their duties.”
