Goodbye from Clare & Pat

Posted by Amanda Taylor

Clare and Pat celebrated their 5 year county commissioner term with a meal at Hodnet Hall gardens. The weather was delightful and guests were able to look at the gardens before presentations were made. Clare received her Laurel Award and 20 year long service and Lady Jane her 40 year service. We also presented Cris Jones as the outgoing Trefoil Chairwomen and other Vice Presidents with long service awards. We welcomed our new County Commissioner Sarah Myers and her assistant Catherine Coleman.

Shropshire Cares, Shropshire Shares Badges

Posted by Amanda Taylor

Shropshire Cares – Shropshire Shares

This social action badge is in two sections, Shropshire cares is about being active in the community, maybe carol singing at an old peoples home or planting trees along the canal. Shropshire shares involves collecting and giving, this maybe toiletries for the Red Box Project, food for the foodbank or animal food for the cats and dogs home. Make your challenges as quirky as you want and don’t forget to share them on social media. These will allow units to take social action at all levels. Shropshire cares is about being active in the community and Shropshire shares allows you to collect and donate for a worthwhile cause – all of your girls choosing! Enjoy!!

The badges are in stock and available from the badge secretary.
