Anyone for an Easter Mocktail?

The guides were busy again. This week, making Easter Egg Mocktails with ice cream, milk, sauce and chocolate! Here are some of the results:

Recycle, Re-use – an amazing example

What a wonderful example of putting what some might think of as discarded rubbish to good use. The guides had asked our local Shipley supermarket if they could collect the old, returned, empty crisp packets for a project. They were met by cages of plastic and each of the 15 guides trudged back up Hall […]
