What has been happening in East Lothian

County Flag Competition

A sunset beach, 20 Guides, the Navy and a fair amount of rope. It was County Flag time, 5 East Lothian Guide units met at Yellowcraigs beach for the next competition event. This time the activities were being run by the Royal Navy, Youth Engagement Team for Scotland & Northern Ireland. The teams moved around bases, moving in sync on planks of wood, attempting bomb disposal, compass directions blindfolded and carrying messages alongside a bit of R&R making a beach sculpture. 9th Musselburgh Guides were the winners this time, competing against 1st Dunbar, 1st Pencaitland, 1st Prestonpans (the holders) and 4th Tranent. Well done to the all the teams, see you in two years.
