Girlguiding Moray's Annual Event celebrated the achievements of members of all ages across Moray.

The event saw the presentation of five girls from 1st Forres Guides with the Baden Powell Challenge Award. Four girls from 2nd New Elgin Guides also received this award for their acheivements but were presented with their awards at a celebration at Hopeman Beach. They were amongst 21 girls across Moray who achieved the award in the last year. 

This award is the highest available within the Guide section and takes, on averagem four years to complete. These girls are amongst the last to receive the award as Girlguiding modernises allowing girls from all age groups to work towards the new Gold Award.

Margo Howe, from the Trefoil Guild section, was presented with her Voyage Silver Award. The award takes over 12 months to complete and includes service, fundraising and self-development. 

Eight members also received their Long Service Awards this year. On the day, Elaine Penny, from 1st and 2nd New Elgin Guides, and Nicola Smith, from 4th Keith Brownies, received their awards for 30 years' service to Girlguiding. 

The event also showcased a trip to the Netherlands by Keith Guides, a trip to Switzerland by Guides and Rangers from Forres, Buckie and Lossiemouth and a trip to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia by Elgin Rainbow leader Emily Gonnella.
