Radlett teen, Charlotte Day, 'probably first in Hertfordshire' to earn all 41 Girl Guide badges
A 15-year-old girl from Radlett has finished her four years of being a Guide by gaining all 41 of the Guide Interest Badges, ranging from active response, camper, and circus skills to independent living, outdoor pursuits and world issues.
Charlotte Day has just completed her four years of being a Guide in the 1st Radlett Unit. She was presented with a letter of congratulations last night from County Commissioner Julie Richards, who attended the District's annual 'Carols Round the Campfire' event.
Mrs Richards said gaining a full set of interest badges is quite a unique achievement for Girlguiding members, and that Charlotte is probably the first within Hertfordshire.
Earlier on in the year, Charlotte was presented with her Baden Powell Challenge Award, which is the highest award a girl can receive within her time as a Guide, and since joining the movement has spent over 100 nights away with Girlguiding at numerous camps, sleepouts and holidays both within her own very active Unit, and withother Girlguiding members throughout Hertfordshire.
Charlotte, from Goodyers Avenue in Radlett, said: "Throughout my time at Guides, I have been aiming to complete the full set of 41 Guide interest Badges and now I have finally done it.
"I’m not going to lie - it was tough and challenged me but with the support and encouragement I received from my family and friends I persevered and finally succeeded."
