GB Camp 2016

GB_EnglandWalesLogo7th Coventry Girls’ Brigade Company are heading to St Andrew’s United Reformed Church in Cheltenham on Friday 29th April 2016 for a weekend indoor Camp.

Activities during the weekend will include a ride on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire steam railway, walks and games in the Cotswold countryside, tenpin bowling, outdoor swimming, visits to Sudeley Castle and Burford Cotswold Wildlife Park and lots of crafts and games.

We will have a theme of ‘choices’ – thinking about the choices we make and the consequences of these.

HoECommunityLogo.pngDoing this many activities has been made possible by the support of Morrisons in Holyhead Road allowing us to do a Bag Pack, donations from a church member and a significant from Heart of England Community Foundation.
The grant from Heart of England Community Foundation has paid for our coach, entry to Sudeley Castle and craft materials. We are very grateful for this support.

We look forward to sharing all we got up to after we return from Cheltenham on
Monday 2nd May 2016.
