Introduction to Guiding.

Guiding is for all girls and young women, whatever their background and circumstances. We offer them fun, exciting activities and the chance to make life-long friends.

• We are open to all girls – of all faiths and none.
• Our groups are fully integrated to include girls with disabilities.

We give girls their own space

We give girls a space where they can really be themselves with other girls and share the experience of growing up as a girl in today’s world. 

• We know from our research that being girl-only is one of the things our young members value most about guiding.

We give the girls the confidence, skills and information to make informed decisions. We show girls how they can speak out and take positive action to improve their lives and the lives of others.

Recent news:

On Monday 19th October Freya and Margot, members of our Rainbows and Brownies,  presented our Minister, Janet, and Chris Goley, our treasurer, with a cheque for £210.   

Girls present money to church minister

The Rainbow and Brownie groups had raised that impressive amount by having a coffee and cake evening the week before. Chris said, “We were both very appreciative of this wonderful effort towards funds for the church. I told them it would go to pay for display boards in the hall, so that every group using the hall could show others what they are doing.”
