The hard work of three Girl Guides from Ely was recognised at a special award ceremony, on Saturday.
The mayor of Ely, Cllr Lis Every, was on hand at Ely Beet Club to present Saskia Winkle and Kim Watts with their Baden-Powell awards and Verity Grain with her silver Duke of Edinburgh award.
All three girls are with the 1st Ely Guide group.
Baden-Powell awards can take up to a year to complete and involve the Guides completing a series of challenges, including camping and craft.
The award is named after the founders of the movement, Agnes and Robert Baden-Powell.

Chris Turnbull who helps run 1st Ely Guides said “We are very pleased for the girls because quite often Guides leave before they finish the Baden-Powell award.”
