I returned to guiding saying I would help! My daughter was moving from Brownies to Guides and they needed an adult helper.
Very soon I found friendships and experiences that you don’t find in your working life with other adult members. I took the Guides to camp including a trip to Scotland flying from Gatwick to Edinburgh including a visit to the tattoo, took Brownies under canvas at a district camp in Kent and stayed long after my daughter had her own family.
I have been both district and division commissioner and now along side this commissioner role I am a Snowy Owl in a brownie unit.
Guiding is unique and never the same for very long. I am proud now that my previous Guides are now running units in their own right.
