Girl Guiding

Girl space with no boys around

Girlguiding UK, as part of a worldwide Movement, enables girls and young women to fulfil their potential and to take an active and responsible role in society through its distinctive, stimulating and enjoyable programme of activities delivered by trained volunteer leaders. Contact our Guide Leader to see what roles are available at the moment.

Rainbows 5 - 7 year olds

Rainbows have fun! Rainbows take part in indoor and outdoor activities as part of their programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw.

Their meetings are full of games and activities which provide challenging opportunities for Rainbows to think for themselves and take an active part in unit decision-making.

Everything a Rainbow does helps her develop. It's an opportunity to look, learn, laugh and love. They play games, have parties and make things while developing life skills. Find out about Rainbows.

Brownies 7 - 10 year olds

Brownies do it all! Brownies take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best.

Their meetings are action-packed and full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves.

Brownies belong to a pack and work in small groups called Sixes. This gives each girl a group of ready made friends to take care of her. Any girl over 7 can become a brownie as long she is able to understand and wants to make the Brownie guide promise. Learn more about Brownies.

Guides 10 - 14 year olds

Being a Guide encourages girls to develop by undertaking challenges and pushing the boundaries of their experience. Guides take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best.

Guides choose and plan most of their own activities, which can include theme evenings, trips and all sorts of fun! There are often other opportunities for Guides to take part in special activities and events throughout the year. The unit goes away on holiday, to camp or on overnight sleepovers. Guides are members of GirlGuiding UK, the largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women in this country. It has about 600,000 members.

Membership of Guides is open to any girl over ten as long she is able to understand and willing to make the Guide promise. Read more about Guides.
