Sue Mayhew, Melton Division Commissioner, said: “If people join it’s a good social activity, you make lots of new friends and learn new skills. It’s also good to add to a young persons CV, especially those looking at teaching.

“Anyone who wants to come along will be given support with training i.e. safe space, First Response and Guiding.”

Melton Division Guides have 268 girl members and 78 volunteers - Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers. They meet on a weekly basis in term time at various venues across the town, Asfordby, Harby, Long Clawson, Thrussington and Rearsby.

Girls experience many different opportunities including camping, pack holidays, sleep overs and days out. Some of the Guides also get selected to go on international trips.

There is also an emphasis on community. Members waitress at Sage Cross Methodist Church, help Rotary raise money with Santa’s sleigh, support Melton Mencap with various activities and fundraise for Macmillan and other charities.

Those interested in joining or volunteering should call Sue on (01664) 851442 or log onto the Girlguiding UK website.
