GUIDING

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK.

Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.

Brownies

Brownies is a section for girls aged seven to ten.

Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

Brownies become a member of a Six, a unit with a name such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog or Rabbit, and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. These six names reflect the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that Brownies have.

The Brownie Adventure is divided into three areas:
• You
• Community
• World

Brownies meet on Wednesday evenings at Holy Trinity School and Thursday evenings at Highbury. If you are interested in becoming a Brownie please visit: www.girlguiding.org.uk/interested or email highburybrownies@live.com

Guides

Guides is a section for girls aged 10 to 14.

By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different.

Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.

Guides work together in small groups or 'Patrols' and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using Go for It! resource packs.

The Guide programme is divided into five areas:
• discovery of new experiences and challenges
• healthy lifestyles
• global awareness
• skills and relationships
• celebrating diversity.

Girls can extend their knowledge and skills by working towards Guide interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Film lover to Independent living.

Guides meet on Friday evenings at Highbury. If you are interested in becoming a Guide please visit: www.girlguiding.org.uk/interested
