Girl Guide Ambassador Eilidh Welcomes Award Winner to Commons

Friday, 19 April 2013

Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford welcomed two special visitors to the House of Commons this week.

County Commissioner for the Girl Guides Mabel Webster and Andrea Fowlie of Aberchirder were in London for the presentation of the Queen’s Guide Award to Andrea.  They met with the local MP where they were given a tour of the House of Commons before the ceremony where Andrea was presented with her award by Baroness Cox of Queensbury.

Dr Whiteford is also an “Ambassador” for the Girl Guides in Banff and Buchan.

Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford MP said:

“It was a pleasure to meet with Andrea and Mabel at the House of Commons, particularly on Andrea’s special day when she was being presented with her prestigious award.

“Andrea had to undertake a wide range of activities and community work over three years to receive the award, including community work in South Africa where she spent a gap year.  Her award is thoroughly-deserved and I congratulate her on her achievement.

“Having been involved in Guiding myself, I know that the movement offers young women invaluable experiences, and opportunities to take part in a great breadth of activities  that are often useful in later life. The volunteers who give up their time to serve as leaders of youth organisations deserve the thanks of the whole community too for what they enable our youngsters to do."
