More than 80 girl guides received awards for their achievements with their girl guide groups at an awards ceremony last week.
The guides from Girl Guiding Essex West received Jack Petchey Achievement awards for a range of worthy accomplishments including completing challenges and supporting other guides.
The young winners, aged 11-25, received medals, certificates and £200 cheques for their commitment to the guide group.
The winners were nominated by their peers and guide leaders, with eight leaders also receiving awards for their work motivating young people.
Girl Guiding Essex West county commissioner Jan Knight said: “Our Guides never cease to amaze me - how caring they are of others in their units and also their communities.”
