Girl Guides

 

The aim of Guiding is to help girls and young women develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world.

Girlguiding UK, as part of a worldwide movement, enables girls and young women to fulfil their potential to take an active and responsible role in society through its distinctive, stimulating and enjoyable programme of activities delivered by trained volunteer leaders.

 

The Guide section involves girls from the age of 10 years to 14 years. They work together in small groups called Patrols, which they choose for themselves. The leaders work to provide a varied programme during our meetings, with the girls making most of the decisions about what is included.

They enjoy Go For Its and badges, especially any which involve food, particularly chocolate! They organise pamper sessions, do craft work, singing, dancing and plays. They take part in sports of all kinds, both in the meetings and within the District. We try to camp at least once a year and enjoy trips out to the cinema, bowling, country parks, pop concerts etc. We attend Church Parade Service each month and on occasions help to lead the service.

 

We meet in St Mary's School on Tuesdays from 7.30pm to 9.00pm.
