World Thinking Day On The Air
The Leigh Times reports Rainbows, Brownies and Girl Guides from the 17th A Leigh unit took part in amateur radio activities for World Thinking Day. ‘World Thinking Day' is an important annual event for Brownies and Girl Guides around the world. This takes place on the birthday of founder Lord Baden-Powell, and is an opportunity to think about others around the world. Sarah M6PSK and Pete M0PSX from Essex Ham helped more than 20 Brownies, Guides, Seniors and Team Leaders send greetings messages to other amateur radio enthusiasts. The experience helped youngsters of the 17th A Leigh unit to get their ‘On The Air’ communicators badges. The event also included a video showing astronaut Tim Peake GB1SS performing experiments on the International Space Station, and the importance of radio in our daily lives.
