Clare and Pat celebrated their 5 year county commissioner term with a meal at Hodnet Hall gardens. The weather was delightful and guests were able to look at the gardens before presentations were made. Clare received her Laurel Award and 20 year long service and Lady Jane her 40 year service. We also presented Cris Jones as the outgoing Trefoil Chairwomen and other Vice Presidents with long service awards. We welcomed our new County Commissioner Sarah Myers and her assistant Catherine Coleman.
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.
We held a fantastic final BP weekend at Hodnet Hall in July. We celebrated with 31 girls, took part in a ceildh and had an ice cream van. The girls managed to sleep out under the stars before a badge presentation and our own special badge to commemorate. It was a wonderful event and the girls made many friends. We also said a huge thank you to all our BP team and Debbie Bray the co ordinator.
