Hi everyone from sunny Manchester!

At the end of this week, members of the Olave Baden-Powell Society (OB-PS) are gathering in Gilwell for their Annual Meeting. Before then however, some of the members are doing a tour of the Lake District. I’m lucky enough to be joining them as a courier so I’m really excited!

Our hotel for tonight is the IBIS Styles in Manchester. The theme of the hotel is different weather, and many of the members have been lucky enough to be assigned the ‘sunny’ rooms. My room has a theme of rain (they must know I’m British) but it’s fine, as I only have to step outside for sunshine today!

Right now, some people are out on the open-top bus of Manchester. Tomorrow we’re heading off to the Lake District, with Waddow House, our first Guiding-related stop. Keep an eye on the blog to see what we are getting up to!
