At a Gipp’s Guide meeting the topic of conversation ranged from what to do next meeting, different ideas for making pin wheels, learning and using more etiquette both at home and in Guide Meetings.  With or without Guests. Sounded strange to me as I had not consciously realised that there was a recognised need for social conversation practice along with etiquette.  In fact the Gipp’s Guide who initially made the comment went further and suggested that she include this learning approach in the Olave Baden Powell Award syllabus for herself. The long forgotten arts of etiquette and conversation that Lord Robert and Lady Olave Baden-Powell used were going to be resurrected.

Once one of the visitors was evicted [ the child and baby stayed] the Pin Wheels that they had been making was consumed by the guests and the Gipp’s Guides.
