Cricklade Rainbows visit Heberden House

Girlguiding's Cricklade Rainbow Group visited residents at GreenSquare's Heberden House last week (5 July) as part of their 'kindness' badge. 

The Rainbows invited the residents of Heberden House for an afternoon of tea, cake and craft activities in the communal lounge at the scheme. 

The 15 girls, who were all aged between five and seven, spent an hour in the lounge doing arts and crafts activities with the residents, including colouring and creating a mural of cardboard cut outs of Rainbows' and residents' hands.

Jeanette Hughes, Community Officer at GreenSquare, said: “When the Rainbows approached me and asked if they could get their kindness badge by organising something at Heberden House, I thought it sounded like a great idea!

“It was wonderful to have them all visit the scheme and everyone really enjoyed themselves.”
