Mayor of Bexley joins Blackfen Rainbows for Platinum Jubilee Celebrations


In the last few weeks members from across Girlguiding Greater London Kent County have been taking part in some wonderful Jubilee Celebrations.

Tuesday 24th May saw Blackfen Rainbows celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a Street Party attended by all members, families and Leaders, past and present.  The celebration was also attended by Cllr James Hunt who visited the unit as one of his very last events as the Mayor of Bexley. Cllr Hunt said, “It has been such a lovely event and the girls had a great time. The decorations were great!”

Rainbow Leader and Lamorbey District Commissioner Louise Matthews explained, “The Rainbows were able to tell the Mayor lots about what they had been doing at Rainbows in the weeks leading up to their fantastic celebration and we’re very excited to meet him, especially as it was one of his last events as his term of office ended the next day.”

All the girls were presented with commemorative badges and balloons and the Leaders arranged for mugs to be made for each girl to remember the historic event.
