SEVERAL new members joined the 2nd Alcester Guides recently during a trip to Solihull Ice Rink.

Making their promise is supposed to be a memorable experience, and the girls definitely made this one memorable by taking their promise on the ice itself.

The group made their promise before trying out their skating skills.

Stephanie Jackson from 2nd Alcester Guides, said: “Leader Lauren Caffrey led the promise with much success, until the ice proved too slippy and half the group fell to the ground amidst much hilarity. Jon Eley has nothing to worry about.”
