Criteria applies 3758718AA Guiding her way to London centre Volunteer at Pax By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Heading back to Europe: Jessica Thompson. Upper Hutt teenager Jessica Thompson will spend four months as a volunteer in London's Pax Lodge, the world centre of Girl Guiding, early next year. Jessica is a member of Pencarrow regional rangers, who received the Queen's Guide Award (Guiding's top achievement) from former Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanand at Government House in July. She will help permanent staff at Pax Lodge, living on site, and be rostered four days on and two off, giving her the ideal opportunity to explore London on her free days. The lodge is open to Guides and Scouts -- but mostly girls -- from throughout the world. It has up to 10 volunteers at a time. Jessica says many of the volunteers are New Zealanders but believes she will be the only New Zealander when she is there. She applied in writing and had to provide three references. A 20-minute interview at 10pm on Skype followed. Jessica is most looking forward to four months living in London, even though she will be com- pletely out of her comfort zone. She is least looking forward to the cold of winter in London. It will be a repeat of Upper Hutt '', she says -- a reference to the recent snow. The trip will not be her first to Europe, as two years ago she attended a Guide and Scout world jamboree in Belgium. Jessica, in year 13 at Upper Hutt College, has been working part-time at the Ascot Cinema to fund airfares, spending money and a Contiki tour after her time at Pax Lodge. She hopes to start a BA at Vic- toria University (probably majoring in history), part way through next year or at the start of 2013. CHESS The second round of games in the 2011 club cham- pionships was played on Monday evening at the Upper Hutt Chess Club. In the A grade Anton Reid and 2010 champion Ben Thomas had wins. Thomas is the only player with two wins in the A grade. Wins in the B grade went to Mike Stevens, Tony Hughes, Richard Catterall and Bill Orr. Cat- terall is the only B grade player with two wins from his two games, but he has the bye next week.
