Buzz about Anglia – Bee Amazzzing

In January 2021, we launched our ‘Buzz about Anglia’ challenge to celebrate our 50th birthday. The challenge includes 6 themes, you can find more about the challenge and the idea behind it here Buzz About Anglia challenge.

Bee Amazzzing is one of the 6 themes and will be the focus for the months of November and December. However, for those members that want to get this theme completed before then or wish to plan long term, we have selected a number of activities to get you started.

Bee Amazing – Celebrate being you and being part of Girlguiding Anglia and all the amazing fun and friendship Girlguiding has to offer.

This theme gives lots of opportunities for us all to celebrate being apart of #AmazingAnglia. We will also host our Amazzzing Anglia Birthday Party as part of this theme, giving us all a chance to come together and celebrate our region. You can use the suggested activities within this blog to inspire you, but also feel empowered to come up with your own suggestions and make it your own.

If you are doing this as a unit or group, ask your members what they would like to do. Don’t worry if it’s something you know nothing about, there will be advice available to you and people who can help.

Activities

Shout out about guiding

Get something published to tell everyone how amazing guiding is in your area. This could be digitally or a printed publication. Try to pick something unusual or topical in your area, involve other members and ensure your story is exciting and showcases how important guiding is to you.

It can be difficult to get a story published full time, perhaps your local or county media and communications team can support you. They could also help you with format, branding and publications to approach. Please make sure you have all relevant permissions.

Have an amazing day 

In a group or on your own plan an amazing day out. Where will you go, how will you get there, what will you take, what will you do ??

When guidelines and restrictions allow perhaps you can go on the trip and record what you do, did it go to plan ? What was the most amazing bit of your day? 

Alternatively if you prefer not to travel create a virtual trip, watch videos, try activities relevant to the location.

Whatever you do create some amazing memories.
