October brings nonstop fun for girls and young women across South Cumbria, but for just over 130 Girl Guides and their volunteer leaders, October really started with adventure on a fun filled day in Liverpool.

“Wonderfully wet” (Honey) Guide from 1st Broughton Guides

Once loaded onto coaches the excited girls headed for Liverpool and tried either a giant inflatable obstacle course on water at the Wild Shore Aqua Park or an inflatable theme park at Bounce House! With the weather set fair the guides challenged themselves on the courses and had much fun and laughter along the way!

Along with the adventure activities the guides also spent time exploring Liverpool. Exploring the Albert Dock, visiting Liverpool museums and of course shopping was popular before the guides headed back onto the coaches for a sleepy bus ride home!

A big thank you to the volunteer leaders who accompanied their guides, without which these events could not run, and a massive well done to the event organisers for such a well-run, unique event!
