THEY are the top of the tree.

That is Terri-Ann Morris and Smanatha Douglas, two Girl Guides from Sheffield who have been handed the highest accolade the movement has to offer.

The women, both aged 24, recently earned the highest award available in Guiding, the Queen’s Guide Award.

They were presented with their badges and certificates at a special afternoon tea at Guide House, Hesley Wood Scout Activity Centre, White Lane, Chapeltown.

Terrie-Ann said: “The award gives young women the chance to develop skills while contributing to guiding and their local community.

“It is based on the concepts of personal challenge and participation and is split into five sections which are service in guiding, outdoor challenge, personal skill, development, community action and residential.”
