Did you celebrate Burns Night with a feast of haggis, tatties and neeps and a ceilidh? I was away for the weekend with our Guide Unit at Girlguiding Greater London West County's Campsite at Heyswood; what a gloriously frosty weekend it was for celebrating Burns Night and getting the girls outside Growing Up Wild 'In the Woods'. We gave each patrol a copy of In the Woods and Mud and let them plan their own activities. Many of the girls chose to make or renew their Promise in their dens, at the highest point they could climb to in the trees or whilst squelching barefoot through bitingly cold mud. What fabulous adventures they had and now have special memories that will last for ever. The verdict on haggis was surprisingly positive after some initial reluctance, followed by great fun at the ceilidh: Scottish dancing, skits on The Story of the Haggis and all polished off with a wee dram of ... Irn Bru!
