TWELVE girls from 3rd Wisbech Rainbows were taught how to make dreamcatchers by a group of Rangers who are developing their skills as guiding volunteers.

Wendy Oldman, Ranbow leader, said: “A key part of guiding is based on giving girls the chance to develop their leadership skills.

“The Rangers (from 3rd Wisbech Rangers) worked really hard to make sure the Rainbows had a fun time making and decorating their dreamcatchers which they can use at home.”

Rainbows are aged five to seven and Rangers are aged 14-25. Anyone interested in joining either group should contact the county office on 01223 813917 or e-mail office@cambseastguides.org.uk
