In photos: Burnham-On-Sea Girl Guides get into Olympics spirit

Girl Guides from across the Burnham-On-Sea area got into the Olympics spirit this week by taking part in their own London 2012 themed event in Brent Knoll.

The event on Thursday night (May 24th) was held on Brent Knoll Village Green in memory of Connie Robb, a past Guides District Commissioner that is remembered every year.

The girls and young women, aged 5 upwards, took part in a wide range of Olympic-based events, including an opening ceremony and a tug of war!

It comes after Girlguiding UK invited members to get involved in London 2012 to encourage them to be active, learn about the cultures of different countries around the world, and to explore the values that underpin the Olympic and Paralympic movements.

Kate Sutton, leader with the Brownies and event organiser, told "We are already really excited about the Games in London this summer and this week's torch relay was something we wanted to take part with in our own way. We want to inspire the local girls to follow the events and they have learnt a lot about the spirit of competition."
