Guiding in Newtonhill is facing a crisis. We are looking to recruit leaders in all of our sections, especially Guides, who are due to close at the October Holidays. If you or anyone you know can help, please contact us urgently using the email address below.
Guiding is a game - with a purpose. It provides opportunities for girls and young women to be challenged by new adventures and experiences and achieve a sense of pride in accomplishment and teaches them to understand and learn about the world, its people and cultures.
Girlguiding in Newtonhill is very healthy at present with a membership of approx 120.
. One Rainbow Unit (for girls aged 5-7 years)
. Three Brownie Packs (for girls aged 7-10 years)
. One Guide Company (for girls aged 10-14 years)
The groups meet on various evenings for further details please contact Morag Kennedy on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Their meetings are full of games and activities, which provide challenging opportunities for Rainbows to think for themselves and take an active part in unit decision-making.
Brownies have fun! They take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best! Their meetings are action-packed and full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves. Everything a Brownie does is an adventure - it's a world of excitement, new interests and friends.
Brownie Packs meet once a week during school terms. There are often other opportunities for Brownies to take part in special activities and events throughout the year. Brownies can go away on holiday, to camp or an overnight sleepover.
Being a Guide is all about belonging to a group, learning new skills, making new friends and helping others. Each Guide is encouraged to achieve her own personal goals through a progressive programme with the opportunity to work for a wide variety of badges. This allows the girl to mature and develop at her own pace.
Adult Leaders work directly with girls and young women to run Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or Senior Section units. The adult Leader is encouraged to take Girlguiding UK's Leadership Qualification, although there are many opportunities to volunteer without doing it.
There are numerous opportunities for Leaders to be involved in further training and activities at local and Association level.
We’re having fun come and join us.
