EASTWOOD councillor Keith Longdon presented a cheque to the town’s Girl Guides to help them with their trip inter-railing around Europe.

Cllr Longdon gave the group £400 out of his county council fund.

He said: “I always like to support the youth and this is a great example of what we should encourage. I say good luck and enjoy what the trip has to offer’.

The girls aged 12 to 15 will travel to Germany, Austria and Italy before going on a week-long camp in Leicester for the international jamboree where they will meet Guides and Scouts from all over the world.

The 1st Eastwood Guides meet every Thursday evening at the Dora Philips Hall.
