They also managed to sit in the public gallery at the House of Lords and watch the Brexit debate.
Senior Section member Alicia Kernaghan commented “Our tour guide used to be the senior doorman for the House of Lords so he managed to wangle for us to watch the opening procession where they carry the mace in which visitors usually are not allowed to do.
The Houses of Parliament were surreal – we couldn’t go in the House of Commons as a debate was about to start – so they were just setting the sniffer dogs out to check no one had left bombs or anything but we got to look in. We then went up to the ‘strangers gallery’ and sat and watched the first 45 minutes of what was a very heated debate.”

On Thinking Day, the girls visited Pax Lodge to join in their celebrations.
