RAINBOWS gathered in Berwick St James at the weekend to celebrate a quarter of a century of fun, adventure and learning.

More than 50 girls from units across the Sarum division took to the dance floor of the county headquarters, trying the cha cha cha, country dances and more modern steps before heading out doors to the Big Top where they learned circus skills with Jonathan the Jester.

Archery was a big draw for the youngsters as archer Andy Kinsey showed them how to place the arrow and pull on the bow in a safe environment, most hitting the bull’s eye for the very first time.

And two young leaders from the Winterbournes supervised team games involving parachutes, balls and hoops.

Division Rainbow adviser Jane Lackey said: "The girls had a fantastic day, gaining confidence and learning new skills with each activity they've tried. “They are always so enthusiastic and enjoy trying new adventures.”
