This is the highest amount of Gold awards ever achieved by the Banff and Buchan Guiding at one time.

Duke of Edinburgh Advisor’s Mabel Webster and Lorna Sarsow were very proud of the girls achievement in giving service, learning new skills, residential projects and expeditions. This achievement is extra special as it is a great way for Lorna who is ending her post as Duke of Edinburgh Advisor in Banff and Buchan.
