    Uh Oh - saw this on the Daily Fail

    Just goes to show how open and accessible Facebook and guiders are to non members!!! Some of the comments I've seen have been so rude and generally not nice! It doesn't send out a good message to the general public! I can imagine that some of the comments will have put off potential new...

    Loom bands - anyone tried it with Rainbows?

    They're all over atm. Poundland and the work all have them, but I'm unsure if there's a quality difference, from buying more expensive ones. (As in the cheaper ones always braking)

    Camp theme

    I've done a back to basics camp with 2 previous units and it went down very well. They ended up with their traditions of guiding badges and outdoor cooks:) We even borrowed an Icelandic Tent from the site and got the girls to help put it up. They loved it and wanted to sleep in it:)

    Centre for Life

    Yeah I went to the Centre for Life with my guides when I was in Newcastle. I agree it was fab! There was a Wallace and Grommet exhibition on. The Discovery museum is also worth a visit. We went, as part of I think it was a division event during the centenary and it was great. The kids loved it...

    How to set up a new Facebook account for a Guide group

    I set up my mums scout group's FB. Initially we did it as a secret group, but we found that parents couldn't search for it and if we didn't have all their email addresses then we couldn't add them either. We settle for a closed group, so parents could search and request, but one of the admins...

    ALQ question

    I started mine back home in Lancashire and finished it off when I moved to Newcastle. Just keep a note and any evidence you need for it and remember there's no major rush. Good luck:) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
