Guessens Guide Hut - Appeal For Votes Successful!

The Welwyn Garden City Heritage Trust has had many wonderful Guide & Brownie memories and photos donated to its archive. Now the current Rainbows, Brownies and Guides in Guessens District, WGC are closer to their dream of a new hut.

A phenomenal amount of money was raised and building work began but they were still short of funds. Guessens Guide Hut was shortlisted for a Jewsons Building Better Communities Award but needed the public vote so that they could receive an award of several thousand pounds of building materials & take them close to the finish line in terms of fundraising.

Supporters were asked to click on the link and then on the Vote Now box on the right hand side – voters had to log on through Facebook and then click the ‘Like’. The WGC Heritage Trust was pleased to help promote this opportunity by encouraging people to vote. Voting ended on Sunday 19th June and we are delighted to report that the Guessens Guide Hut submission was a winner and will be receiving funds to help it's completion!
