Venturing Outdoors Training, February 2018

Are you worried about taking your Rainbows out to find a pot of gold? Are you brave enough to take your Brownies down to the woods today? Concerned the ghosts and ghouls will get your Guides on a night hike? ...

Then this is the training for you! Designed to provide you with the tools and confidence to venture out of the meeting place, it will assist you to encourage the girls to choose a fun and dynamic programme.

It will take place in Wokingham on 3rd February. For more details, view the event here.

Autumn Training

We would like to invite all Leaders, Unit Helpers, Young Leaders and other members of the Senior Section to our County Training Day.  It is a fun day to meet up with your Guiding friends, chat and make new friends, and along the way learn some useful things to take back to your unit.  We will provide lunch and some great trainers - all free of charge.

There is a particular focus on outdoors and international opportunities, so come along and find out about a lot of exciting ideas.
