Cookafest Excellence

Congratulations to 175th Bristol Brownies, 1st Bristol West Seniors and 1st Henbury Rainbows on winning County Cookafest for their age groups.

Rainbows had great fun making tasty smoothies. Brownies designed and cooked their own pizzas from scratch. Guides did a run ready steady cook competition using a mixture of ingredients and the Senior Section cooked a full 2 course international mean all from scratch. Leaving the Leaders to cook a savoury tart all within budget.
