    New Programme - Discuss!

    Yes, am planning a get-together in May to try to do some stuff. But currently sending them out with newsletters so they can work on them themselves, otherwise there's no way we can cover the programme.

    New Programme - Discuss!

    I am a Lone Guide Guider, and we have to adapt the skills builders and UMAs alot, because our girls are rarely working in groups. Usually we can get something equivalent, but Lead stage 4 is simply impossible to adapt.

    Yes, we do them the best way we can - adapt if necessary. After all, we had to adapt GFIs.

    I'm a trainer and we are strongly advising people NOT to do a theme for a term/ halfterm as this makes it difficult to have a balanced and varied programme. The idea is to mix things up.
