Caroline has been a guide leader for 28 years, in that time she has led literally hundreds, if not thousands, of St Albans children through fun activity and personal development. She has, in fact, dedicated her life to community service. Despite being a working mum of 2 children (both of whom are challenged with dyslexia) she gives up at least 15 hours every week, for local children , of all ages, who are involved in Guiding and Scouting with hours of planning, administration, preparation and, most importantly, leading the guides and cubs. She has been selected as the Hertfordshire Guider to attend the 22nd World Scout event. She is also a key member of the costume team for St. Albans Gang Show spending hours each and every year sewing costumes for children to wear.. Every year she steers and leads her guides to do a vast amount of work within the community from carol singing at homes for the elderly to a host of charity fund raising events. She has achieved her Queen's Guide (highest badge in Guiding) and the 25 year Guide Service award and 25 year Scout Service award. On top of her Guide commitment she also finds time to support a young boy who has Cerebal Palsy at cubs who is in a wheel chair and has no verbal communication . She has actively encouraged deaf children from a local deaf school to become involved in Guides. Caroline is an inspiration and an example for all to follow.
