Question? What resources are available for Recruiting Guides?

We are going to start a recruitment campaign to hopefully boost our numbers for Guides.

Does Chq offer any free resources, which can either be downloaded or posted out?

We are going to create our own, but thought it would also be nice to have some official ones to back our posters up.

Any other ideas to help with recruitment would be appreciated

I'm pretty sure there's postcards and posters available from Trading free - you just have to pay postage. Or for something more personal try getting your existing Guides to do posters & Postcards.

I know that some of them are downloadable as well, but I found that as I need to provide billingual things to go through council owned places (leisure centures, schools etc) it is easier for me to do my own. To use GGUK publicity would require me ordering from Broneirion, and they don't always have the postcards/posters available in Welsh.

Can you not just order direct from Trading Services?

No, just the English ones from Trading, last time I ordered some.

As for printing off, with the number of schools that I send out flyers for, don't particularly want to use up a lot of ink printing them off. Also doesn't look quite right when using ones from Trading and then ones printed off.

Not sure if Broneirion has any posters/postcards currently available in at the moment as I haven't requested any recently.

Certainly in the past mentioned that posters could do with being billingual on one card/poster to save on ink for those of us who need things bilingually. Also in response to GGUK's FB page, mentioned that would like to know what publications/resources are available in various languages as not all the girls that come through the units are first language English. I have had several girls through my Rainbows who English is their second language, Welsh their first. At age 5 some children locally are only starting to understand a wider vocabulary of English, especially if their families are in the local farming community.
