13.11.14 Pip’s Perspective – a message from the Chief Commissioner 18.12.14 By now I expect that you have had your final unit meeting of the term and completed your festive celebrations with the girls; for some of us that was two weeks ago as school commitments fill up the calendar at this time ofyear! Many of you will be on holiday from work and looking towards spending time with your family and friends over the Christmas period. Enjoy your well-deserved break, take time to relax and recharge your batteries ahead of a busy year to come. I’m looking forward to our Guide unit holiday over Burn’s Night weekend in January. Our girls have requested Growing Up Wild time climbing trees, building dens and having time to explore. Also, there will be news of an exciting national charity event that we can all get involved in advertised in guiding magazine and the enewsletters this month, so next term promises to be another action packed one. Following a tip I picked up on Twitter, we’re starting back at Guides a week later than usual in January, so the leaders can spend an evening sorting out our storage boxes followed by a pub meal and planning for the term. Making time for volunteers to get together to review and plan the programme is a very important part of running a unit, how do you plan with your leaders? With all good wishes for the festive season however you may celebrate
