    Voyage Award - How are you doing?

    Sorry, but yes you do need to pay the census fee - its £10.60 I think ... The TG have nothing to do with GG and are a separate organisation so if you are an active guider with a unit, your unit will pay for you - mine does for me and I pay the TG's fee myself. However the fee is not required...

    Murder Mystery?

    I would agree that the murder mystery takes more than a normal meeting. We did one on a boat written by one of our members and only dressed up from shoulders upwards. We started it on the Friday evening after dinner and I think we were on board for 4 days so it was possibly about 2 hours an...

    interview on the radio today

    That's a thought! I was watching a children's programme this morning with my baby grand daughter and they were cartoon brownies or guides from memory on channel 5 and there was a badge missing of the leader's sash and the kids went in search of it and did various jobs along the way and upset...

    why is my daughter's brownies sash made of cast iron?

    ] about a year before I left brownies, we brought the yellow gilet in for the girls and it has proved a success since then. I advocate the use of the guide gilet now for the sewing of badges on.

    Community Action

    I had cat's protection just before christmas last year - chosen by the guides - and we still have to do a fund raiser for them. Costs £80 to rescue, health check and flea & worming medication for one kitten. We still have to do some fund raising and I think the other leaders and most of...

    Urgent! Badges

    Yes ... those are the correct badges. Amazing really that the challenge was produced years ago and people are still doing the challenge and attempting to buy the badges. One would think that Girlguiding would consider updating it and renewing the badges - it was certainly one of their...

    Waterways Challenge + Resources

    This challenge was offered as a guinea pig to the community on this forum in early 2013. Out of the 30 units that offered to trial it, only 4 units actually did go ahead with it and tried it out and gave us some valuable feed back. Its now been updated and artwork has been added to it...
