TALENTED young Girl Guides from the borough will take to the stage next weekend as part of the movement's centenary.

Leading the way from Gravesham will be 10-year-old dancer Alice Dunne from 3rd Milton guides and 16-year-old Zoe Beadle, a leader at Higham, who will be singing No-one But You.

The pair are two of only nine girls chosen to perform individually at the Woodville Halls on February 19 and 20.

Zoe has also put her choreographing skills to the test, producing a routine for 22 girls as part of Centenary Showtime.

"I am really excited to be taking part both as a soloist and dancer," she said. "When I heard about Showtime I immediately said that I would like to do the choreography for it and was thrilled when I was told that I could.

"It has been a big challenge and hard work but that is what Girlguiding is all about."

Alice, a member of Carol Ann School of Dance, is performing a modern tap routine and is looking forward to dancing in front of so many people.

"The rehearsals have been hard work because I have had to attend two different ones but it has been worth it and I have enjoyed every minute of it," she said.

Erykah Farrell from Northfleet is five years old and is the youngest girl to be taking part from Thames Division. She has taken her rehearsal very seriously and said she is looking forward to dancing on the stage, but thinks that she will be very nervous.

Each of the 10 divisions, amounting to 350 girls, will be representing a decade from since Guiding began.

Sylvia Angel, said "Girls from Northfleet, Gravesend and Higham are working hard and having great fun learning to rock 'n' roll for our 1950s act."

Tickets for the show cost £10 for adults, £5 for children - call Josie Turner on 01474 568 811 to order.
