Hurricane Irma

In response to the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma, a Just Giving page has been set up to raise funds to support affected units in the Caribbean Branches to rebuild their units, and ensure girls can continue to access the benefits of guiding. If you or your unit would like to make a contribution, please follow the link:
Our thoughts go out to all our WAGGGS friends in the Caribbean and around the world at this time.

Crowthorne Guides at Poacher 2017

Crowthorne Guides recently took part in Poacher 2017, an international jamboree that takes place in Lincolnshire. The group had an awesome time and the girls got to try lots of different activities. Here they are pictured at the Movie Legends subcamp.

The Scouts in the photo are from Finland. One of Senior Section girls went with region to Roihu, a jamboree in Finland, last year. She kept in touch with one of the Scouts and invited them to join the Crowthrone unit at Poacher. What a great demonstration of international friendships through Guiding and Scouting!
