Volunteers are being sought to run a new Rainbows unit for girls aged between five and seven in the Pocklington area.

Leaders at the existing Rainbows unit say it is “thriving” and that it is already full to capacity with 20 girls, and that they have a “massive” waiting list.

Guide and ranger leader Bronia Trynka-Watson said: “If anyone is interested in setting up a new Rainbow unit please contact me.

“It is a very rewarding hobby and lovely to be part of the guiding family. ”

Rainbows units are a section of the Girl Guides where girls take part in lots of different activities including arts and crafts, sports, games and cooking. In doing so they build up self-confidence, learn new things, build friendships and have fun.

Meanwhile, girls at the Pocklington Rainbows held a party at Pocklington Church of England Infants school to mark five years since the group reformed.

Bronia added: “The girls enjoyed singing, craft (they made some amazing hats!) and some delicious party food.

“One of the Rainbow leaders made an amazing layered Rainbow sponge cake which was enjoyed by all!

“Six of the Rainbows also made their promise at the party and were watched and supported by their families. All Rainbows took home a special badge and pencil as a momento of the party.”
