Guiding is an organisation aimed for girls between the ages of 10-14. We aim to promote friendship, be kind and loyal to one another, help our friends both in and out of the meeting place and let the Guides think for themselves by organising their own programme, obviously based around the Guiding programme.
At each meeting they make new friends from different walks of life and different schools. They undertake different challenges each week assisted by our friendly Leaders. Over each week each girl becomes more confident in themselves and in their own abilities.
We also have outdoor activities where the girls extend their knowledge and help with the local community.
