A TEENAGER from Rogiet has been presented with Girl guiding's top award at a ceremony at the House of Lords in London.
Elizabeth Bradley, 19, Girl Guide and former Head Girl of Caldicot School was recently presented with the organisation's top award by Baroness Judith Wilcox and Chief Guide Gill Slocom at a special ceremony.
Last November Miss Bradley, who is known by her friends and family as Beth, received her Gold Duke of Edinburgh award at St James' Palace and now she can add this achievement to her collection.
Beth who is currently studying a joint English and English Language degree at the University of West of England in Bristol is an Adult Leader with 2nd Caldicot Brownies, having been with them since she was a Brownie aged six and a half.
She was amongst a limited number of young women from the UK to receive the coveted Queen's Guide Award this summer. Participants must cover a range of areas from working in community action projects, taking part in outdoor pursuits to developing a personal skill to achieve the award.
The Queen's Guide Award is the most prestigious guiding award open to members between the ages of 16 and 25.
Beth said: "The highlight of my Queen's Guide Award was probably my residential trip to Mexico.
"I made lifelong friends on the trip, and enjoyed experiences with them that I will never forget, as well as encountering and understanding a brand new culture."
