World Thinking Day ceremony

World Thinking Day 2012 was marked with a wreath-laying ceremony held at Westminster Abbey. Chief Guide, Gill Slocombe and Girlguiding Scotland Chief Commissioner, Dinah Faulds, led a Girlguiding delegation that included Vicky Carter and her family from Scotland. Vicky’s family span almost all sections of guiding, and it was an extra special day for Vicky’s daughter Elizabeth (pictured) who made her Brownie Promise after the service.

The service acknowledged Robert Baden-Powell, and his wife, the former World Chief Guide Olave Baden-Powell, as well as the continued work of Girlguiding and The Scout Association.The wreath will remain in place for a week for any members of guiding who wish to visit the Abbey. World Thinking Day took place on 22 February.
