The 1st Cromer Rainbow unit has embraced the coronavirus lockdown and the girls have earned 142 badges during the first 12 weeks of being at home.

The Rainbows have been working even harder than normal on their new programme badges and working towards their bronze, silver and gold awards.  Whilst guiding face to face meetings have been suspended, the unit has been getting together through online Zoom meetings on a weekly basis.

The girls have participated in a number of activities at home including making recycled plant pots to grow sunflowers, drawing pictures for residents at a care home, taking part in scavenger hunts, learning first aid and about RNLI beach and sea safety, learning to ride bikes, playing traditional fairground games in their gardens with their families and helping with home recycling.

Some of the badges earned by the girls during lockdown.

They also found out more about road safety, enjoyed a virtual camping weekend and built robots and musical instruments, to name but a few. 

Guiding is always looking for new girls to join their units, if your daughter or someone you know might be interested in joining, visit
