Shropshire North recently held an afternoon of thanks and were joined by Lindy Smith giving a demonstration and talk on the art of sugarcraft. It was a wonderful afternoon were the ladies were able to relax, chat and learn new skills..and of course eat cake! All our leaders are volunteers and we say a big thank you to them all
Girlguiding is the UK’s largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women.
Girlguiding Shropshire is set within Girlguiding Midlands Region and is an integral part of the National Association.
Girlguiding Shropshire enables more than 3700 girls and young women to develop their potential and to make a difference, through a self planned programme of activities and challenges, guided by more than 600 trained adult volunteers.
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.
Girls can join us at 5 in the Rainbow section (5 – 7 years) and we also have groups for older girls, Brownies (7 – 10 years), Guides (10 – 14 ) and Senior Section (14 – 26 years). We also have a number of roles for adult volunteers.
You may be good with figures and could help a unit with their accounts, or have a key skill you would be willing to share with a unit. Not all our volunteers run a unit every week. If you want to know more about any aspect of Girlguiding Shropshire, please use the ‘Contact Us’ tab at the top of the page.
If you have decided you or someone you have parental responsibility for would like to join us and find an appropriate unit near you, use the ‘Join Us’ link.
It was wonderful to present a leader with her 20 year long service award whilst at Sangam recently. 42 members from the County travelled to the WAGGGS centre in Pune India to take part in community visits and some sightseeing in the Golden Triangle.
