It is often said ‘A rainbow is a promise of sunshine after rain’. Saturday 4th November may have started with rain but almost 200 Rainbows from Girlguiding Sussex Central county brought plenty of sunshine to Tandridge School in Horsham for their exclusive Rainbow Fun Day.

Rainbows from all the county’s divisions enjoyed four different activities: craft, drumming, circus skills / inflatables, and a magic show.

They were joined by the High Sheriff of West Sussex, Mr Andrew (Andy) Bliss, QPM. and his wife Hazel. They were delighted to be given the opportunity to meet leaders and girls from Sussex Central and congratulated everyone on the planning and hard work that had gone into the event, which was matched by the enthusiasm and energy of the youngest members of Girlguiding.
