|3rd Timperley Guide Unit is part of Girlguiding, the largest voluntary youth organisation for girls and young women in the UK.
"The aim of Guiding is to help girls and young women develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world".
The Guide section is for girls aged 10-14 years. We also have Rainbows (5-7yrs) and Brownies (7-10yrs) meeting at the Church.
The Guides spend time in their patrols (small groups) and have the opportunity to be responsible for the weekly programme and their part in it. They work on challenges and activities at the weekly meetings, the topics (which are called "Go-For-Its") currently cover such themes as:
Healthy Eating, Environmental Challenges, Fashion, Five Senses, Parties, Teamwork, Drama and Communication.
Along with these we also do such activities as cookery, games, fundraising and crafts etc.
|Each year the unit offers the girls an opportunity to go away for a weekend, either as a unit or by joining other guide units from the local County. Previous camps and holidays have included an outdoor activity weekend near Lancaster, a weekend at Knowsley Safari Park and a County Summer Gig Camp.|
As there are only a few local guide units in the area, 3rd Timperley Guides is currently full. However we do have a waiting list and are happy to have girls on the list before they are 10, so that hopefully we can offer them a place when they are old enough. Our unit meets on a Monday evening, but there are other local units that meet on other evenings if that is more convenient for you.
Girlguiding has recently changed its joining arrangements, and parents who wish to register their daughter's interest in joining a unit should now do this through the Girlguiding Join Us page:
Can you help?
Girlguiding in our area is also looking for Young (16-18 yr old) and Adult Leaders to help with our weekly meetings and other activities. If you can spare some time to help in this way, please again use the website link above and register interest as a volunteer. We would be happy to see you!
