The District Commissioner Visits ………..

June 26, 2012 at 1:39 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

One of the jobs a District Commissioner is expected to do is to visit each Group within her District.  This allows her to meet all the girls taking part in local Girlguiding, to chat with all the Leaders, deal with any local concerns and ensure everyone is benefitting from the Girlguiding experience.

Having just completed a round of such visits I’ve been really impressed by the variety of activities girls have been able to take part in in Nailsworth Valley District.  My first visit was to Forest Green Brownies where I was kindly invited to share their Jubilee party.  With plenty of food, royal-themed games, decorations and music the party was a great success.  At Woodchester, Brownies were busy decorating paper mache masks for their Night At The Theatre badge whilst the Guides tried foot painting, firstly holding the brush between their toes progressing to painting with the whole foot.  Nailsworth Brownies were very active and set the floor boards of the Town Hall vibrating with their sports themed evening and the Guides enjoyed lighting fires and cooking outdoors.

Rainbows have a full Group again and were very pleased to welcome back one of their Leaders from Switzerland where she’s been working at Our Chalet, one of the Guide World Centres.  Senior Section have had a session silk painting.

My thanks to all the Leaders for providing such a balanced and varied programme of activities and I hope all the girls continue to experience the fun of Girlguiding in Nailsworth Valley District.

Trefoil Guild Meeting

The Trefoil Guild members from the Girlguiding Nailsworth Valley District were among those who organised the County Trefoil Guild AGM at Forest Green.  They worked so hard to organize this – the meeting, entertainment and refreshments were excellent.  Everyone took the opportunity to catch up with old friends (and the not so old friends!) and a good evening was had by all.  Many thanks to the Trefoil Guild for supporting local Girlguiding at the same time as having fun!
