Girlguiding South West England


The Region was due to celebrate its 50th birthday in 2020 with a big event at Wincanton Racecourse in May.  Unfortunately it is going to be difficult for us to plan anything really special when there is still so much uncertainty surrounding the current pandemic.  It has therefore been decided to postpone the Region's big event until 2022 when we hope we will be able to bring you a day which you can all enjoy and will remember for years to come. We will bring you further news on this just as soon as we can.

Please note that the Chief's Charity Challenge 2020-21 will now close on Thinking Day 2022. Click here for more information.

    A Safe Space - Your Membership is at Risk!

    Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do in Girlguiding and our volunteers share an important responsibility to protect and promote the safety and wellbeing of our members. By the end of 2020 all volunteers are required to have the correct level of A Safe Space training for their role.  Volunteers who do not meet this requirement by December 2020 are putting their membership at risk.
