Nearly 700 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders and Volunteers from Girlguiding Shropshire celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Saturday 4th June. Everyone was given a goody bag and a commemorative badge. They all had great fun exploring the various shops, displays and trying out the old fairground rides.
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 Girlguiding organisation.
Girlguiding Shropshire enables more than 2,400 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 500 trained adult volunteers.
Through fun, friendship, challenge and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community.
Girls can join us at 4 in the Rainbow section (4 – 7 years) and we also have groups for older girls, Brownies (7 – 10 years), Guides (10 – 14 ) and Rangers (14 – 18 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.
