The latest project is to do some more work on Lones and Extensions - the pages have been started, now it's time to do more research and develop them. 'Extensions' in particular, is one of the most interesting topics - Guiding was far ahead of it's time in promoting equal education and opportunities for the disabled, both the physically and the mentally disabled, at a time when most disabled children received little or no formal education - and in taking steps to integrate them into mainstream units. Lones showed the desire to reach girls who couldn't attend mainstream units - and of course, are an active section even today, with Lones units running up and down the country, and the internet having replaced the post as the ideal means of linking them . . .
