GUIDES 

What Guides Do

There is nothing better than being outdoors with a campfire and melting smores! 

 

Once a year we go on a camp or pack holiday for a whole weekend. That means no parents!

 

Guides plan their own activities and organise games, midnight feasts and even karaoke. There is off-course the traditional campfire and toasted marshmallows. 

 

 

 

Guides when they join our guide unit are given a buddy who will be a friend and look after her for the first few weeks.

 

Once enrolled, Guides can work on interest or challenge badges, whilst learning new skills.

Guides are the next step after Brownies and are for girls aged between 10 and 14 years old.

------------------

Girls can start Guides on or after her 10th birthday and stay with us until they are 14/15.  

------------------

Patrols are made up of Girlguides working together in small teams, organising activities and making decisions.

Jill had been a Guide 40 years ago but had not forgotten her life-saving skills when her husband suffered a Heart Attack in March 2020 - Wife Saves Husbands Life Twice.

Sisters save Mum's Life 

Two Girlguides used the First Aid training badge training to work when their mum suffered a horrific fall downstairs at their home - Sisters' Save Mums Life.

These are only just some of the stories that reach the news but it shows the impact of Guides being prepared with life skills.
