What happens at Girl Guides
Our Mission is to enable girls and young women to grow into confident, self respecting, responsible community members.
Girls of 5 to 18 years have fun and learn skills that develop their self-confidence and community responsibility.
Guides meet weekly for one to two hours during the school term. Meetings are usually held at the local Guide Hall.
Guiding caters for a range of ages.
