After 42 years of various leadership roles in Girl Guiding, Christine Twell has retired. 

Her longest and last role was leader of King’s Lynn North 2nd Rainbow unit, a role she started after realising there was a gap in Girl Guiding for five to seven-year-old girls in the area. 

In her first group of girls was Beccy Fox and one of her last Rainbows was Beccy’s daughter Olivia (all pictured).

Mrs Twell, a recipient of the Borough Mayor’s Civic Award for voluntary services, said she had thoroughly enjoyed working with the Rainbows for the last 29 years and thanked the Guiders and parents for their support.
