Hundreds of Rainbows celebrate at Fishers! Saturday 19th May 2012

More than 700 Rainbows from around the county descended on Fishers Adventure Farm Park in Wisborough Green last weekend to celebrate their 25th Birthday within the Girlguiding UK movement.

Pressed up against the numerous coach windows were lots of excited little faces this weekend, as the rainbows from around the county rolled up to Fishers to celebrate the Rainbows 25th Birthday.

The 44 Rainbow units came from all 7 division of the Girlguiding Sussex West County, which include; Adur, Arun, Bognor, Chichester, Petworth, Worthing Cissbury and Worthing Highdown.

Kirstin Bosley (Sussex West County Rainbow Advisor) commented "It was fantastic to see so many happy faces enjoying the activities and animals at Fishers Farm Park. The Rainbows were genuinely sad to leave when it came to home time and most expressed a wish to return. I felt very privileged to have been able to share such a special day with so many County Rainbows. My thanks must go out to all those dedicated leaders and helpers who attended with their girls and the Division reps who did a fantastic job of coordinating all the necessary information to make the day go so well and of course everyone at Fishers Farm Park itself who really made us welcome and bent over backwards to accommodate so many of us" 
All visitors piled into the theatre throughout the morning to watch the ‘Animal Show’ followed by activities such as the pony rides, animal handling, the giant bouncy pillow and finally a great big ‘sing-song’ in their extravagantly decorated picnic barn.

The next big event for the Rainbows is the Girlguiding LaSER 25th Birthday event at London Zoo!
