Pippins, Brownies & Guides -- Places Available for Term One!

Pippins is the beginning of an exciting adventure in Guiding. We help girls aged 5 - 6 years to make new friends, tackle challenges, enjoy activities, earn badges and learn to appreciate and respect the environment and the community.

Brownies is about learning, developing self-confidence, making new friends and, of course, having lots of fun outside school! Our programme for girls aged 7 -  9 ½ years includes outdoor adventures, conservation activities, cooking, crafts, games and community action projects – all challenging the girls to achieve and grow.
Guides take part in community projects, outdoor adventures, cultural awareness activities, and camping. Girls who are 9 to 12 ½ years develop leadership skills at Guides as they become more independent in making decisions. Activities are more demanding and the girls take the lead in defining their own programme.
