DURING the last weekend of June 7th Penarth Albert Road Methodist Guides took part in the UK’s biggest scout and guide event 'The Malvern Challenge'.

On the Saturday night, June 28, the sports events took place and, along with twelve other teams, 7th Penarth entered the netball competition.

Having won it last year they were determined to become champions again. The opposition was much stiffer this year and it was a knockout competition. In the quarter finals they met a team from Llanishen who were the favourites. The Guides sorted themselves out to put a strong defence against them, this worked well and they won that match 2-1. They then went on to win the semi final and the final convincingly.
