Unit News for this half-term is filled with photos of girls in all Sections out and about again. All are aware of COVID restrictions and are keeping their distance, washing their hands and leaders are wearing face coverings when necessary.

Most Units have had outdoor meetings others have returned to meetings in halls, but wherever the meeting has been they have been filled with fun and with all the girls really enjoying being back with their Guiding friends

Several new members have been welcomed and due to the increase in the number of girls joining there has been a recruiting campaign for helpers and leaders. Anyone wanting to help with a unit can make contact via the ‘Contact Us’ drop down on this website.
