We are part of Girlguiding West Mercia one of the largest counties of Girlguiding in the UK which is the leading registered charity (No. 1017729) for girls and young women today.

We build girls' confidence and raise their aspirations giving them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We also give them a space to have fun.  If you or your daughter would like to know more about joining then visit www.girlguiding-westmercia.org.uk  or call 0800 169 5901

 

Guides is the section for all girls aged between 10 and 14, it meets on Thursdays during term time and gives them a voice and their own space always changing as the lives of the girls change.

Guides

Guides work together in small groups called "patrols" that provide a ready-made group of friends and helping the girls to feel that they belong to something special. Patrols usually contain between four and eight girls, and elect their own leader.

Guides get to choose and organise some of their activities themselves with the support and help of adult Leaders and Young Leaders.

Being a Guide is all about belonging to a group, learning new skills, making new friends and helping others. Each Guide is encouraged to achieve her own personal goals through a progressive programme with the opportunity to work for a wide variety of badges. This allows the Guide to mature and develop at her own pace.

Group contact is Charlotte.

 

 

 

Brownies is the section for all girls aged between seven and ten, it meets on Thursdays during term time and gives them a voice and their own space always changing as the lives of the girls change.

Each Pack is made up of small groups called Sixes, which despite the name don't necessarily have six girls in them! Each six contains a Sixer, who leads the group, and a Second who is her deputy.

BrowniesThere are often other opportunities for Brownies to take part in special activities and events throughout the year such as sleepovers and holidays.

Brownies follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.

Group contact is Helen Newton.

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbows is the section for all girls aged between five and seven, and are also the youngest section within Girlguiding, being formed in 1987.

Rainbows usually meet weekly on Thursdays during school term time, and have the highest ratio of adults to girls, meaning that each girl gets as much attention and help as possible. 

 

RainbowsUnits also have small numbers of girls (usually less than 15), meaning that they have a very personal feel to them. They follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, which involves a wide range of activities and games. Being a Rainbow is all about learning, developing self-confidence, building friendships and, of course, having lots of fun!
