2nd Beith Guides, parent helpers and leaders were treated to a Historical Guided Walk in their town by local Mr Allan Richardson.  Mr Richardson shared photographs with the girls of the by-gone years as they headed from the Town House, along Eglinton Street, down the Red Brae (or Orr’s Brae) and back up through the Tannery Area.  The girls heard about the numerous toy shops, sweetie shops and even the chocolate factory that used to be in the town. 

The guided walk came to an end at the Town House where the Beith Cultural and Heritage Society greeted us with lovely snacks for the girls.  As a first for the 2nd Beith Guides – our three new members made their guide promise with Audrey Addies, Guide Leader, in the Town House.   Grateful thanks to Mr Richardson and the ladies of the Town House and Trefoil who supported this successful outing in our community.
