Team effort at the Royal Cornwall Show

Messenger Service at the Royal Cornwall Show

For the last 57 years, Girlguiding Cornwall has played an important role in the smooth running of the massive Royal Cornwall Show. This year, some 167 girls applied to be part of our Messenger Service delivering results and messages all over the Show, as well as stewarding the Grandstand and helping to run the very popular Flower Creche so that visitors can safely leave their plant purchases whilst they continue to enjoy their time at the Showground.

But that’s only a part of our annual presence. Behind the scenes, a team of caterers ensure all the girls and leaders are fed and watered well and that exhibitors in the Flower Tent have somewhere quiet to grab a quick cup of tea and something tasty to eat, whilst out front our PR team are busy chatting to the crowds and hopefully inspiring more girls and volunteers to join the fun. Listen to an interview by Pirate FM on the treadmill.

This is a huge team effort, yet thoroughly enjoyed by everyone involved. How nice it was to therefore have these efforts officially recognised with a visit by the Countess of Wessex who as President of the Royal Cornwall Show this year is also President of our own Girlguiding UK.
