The Army, in conjunction with Girlguiding are offering a day of leadership activities linked to the Lead Skills Builder. We have secured a date in the County for 50 girls on a first come first served basis. They will open other days if there is a demand. The day will run from around 9.30 – 4.00 in Donnington Telford and will be free. We will ask for a £10 payment which will be refunded on the day as long as the participant attends. Please contact me to book places the consent form required by the army is attached. It would be useful if units that are offering this to their girls let me know, there is no requirement for a leader to attend from each unit there will be guide leaders on the day and girls can attend in small groups or on their own from the unit.
