September brings a new season and new start to our guiding year and with it promises of exciting things to come; look out for the launch of Growing Up Wild later this month, we’re encouraging all our members to get outside and enjoy our natural environment. Some Brownies from Girlguiding Greater London West did just that last weekend when they discovered a tiny lizard at Heyswood, their County campsite in Surrey. As you complete your plans for the autumn term, try to build in a little Wild Time for your girls, it might only be 5 minutes standing outside your meeting place feeling the rain on their faces or searching the night sky for constellations, but let’s have fun and inspire awe and wonder in the world around us!
A big thank you to the Guides from Addiscombe, Croydon who went on a top secret mission to Blacklands in the summer term for a photo shoot for the new Guide uniform. What a fantastic day they had! The new polo shirt and hooded jacket have really grown on me. We’re back to the bright colours of the Guide uniform that I wore; ‘Guide blue’ with a red necker; in fabulous, practical new fabrics that will wash and wear well. There are useful new guidelines on uniform for all sections in the Guiding Manual.
Enjoy your first meetings back with the girls after your well earned summer break,
