You might not have seen us out & about recently but Girlguiding is still here & happening locally!
At the present time we feel it is more important than ever to offer girls & young women a place of their own where they can have a break from everything else, switch off & just have some fun in a safe environment.
Rainbow, Brownie & Guide units have been meeting ‘Virtually’ thanks to the availability of ‘Zoom’ & the girls continue to see their friends, earn badges & learn new skills. We’ve even been able to invite some special visitors along as well! Everyone from Santa, to Yoga teachers to animal handlers have been able to take part as well.
We know that there are so many people who are now getting fed up with the ‘groundhog day’ feeling that the Covid restrictions have created, so why not try something to break up your routine? There are many benefits to volunteering & the adults certainly gain just as much as the girls do in Guiding – if not more so. It’s a good way to build up skills & improve your mental health
A large proportion of our lovely volunteers are also employed as Key Workers so don’t have the same amount of time to be able to run the meetings & would really welcome some help. This could be as a regular volunteer at meetings, helping with some of the admin – especially accounts, or do you have a skill that could be shared with the girls via Zoom?
