Some 300 members of Sidmouth’s Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Senior Section unit, Trefoil Guild and volunteers came together to enjoy an afternoon of fun and games.

The event took place at Salcombe Regis Field on Saturday and offered the girls chance to take part in traversing, rifle shooting, archery, sumo wrestling and a number of craft events.

The Trefoil Guild started in 1943 and over the course of seven decades have helped to support units in the town by raising money and offering their time to work with leaders and young guides.

Grace Essex, from the Trefoil Guild, said: “It was an event which the whole community can be proud, without their help this event could not have taken place.”
