Welcome to Girlguiding Jersey.
Where Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers enjoy great opportunities for each girl to have fun, create friendships and experience new challenges.
In these challenging times units have not been able to meet face-to-face since March but we are delighted that some of our units are now able to return to face-to-face meetings.
Our priority is the safety of our volunteers, the girls and all their families. As such we are considering each unit's return on a case-by-case basis, undertaking a full risk assessment in conjunction with the leaders and the venues and ensuring that Government Public Health guidance is followed. No unit will return until this has been done and approved by our Commissioners.
Some units will not be able to return to face-to-face meetings currently due to COVID restrictions. Some units are offering online guiding at this time.
Each unit is different and we thank all our volunteer leaders and helpers for the time they give to guiding, especially in these challenging times.
Please follow our Facebook page 'Girlguiding Jersey' to see the fantastic opportunities we offer girls and adults. If you would like to join us please click on the link to register as a girl or adult.
As I take over the Girlguiding Jersey Island Commissioner role I would like to introduce myself to you all.
I started my Guiding journey as a Brownie and Guide at 11th St Clements.
After three years studying in Brighton I returned to Jersey to work and first became known as 'Squirrel' when I started my leadership qualification in 1988.
My current units are 17th St Saviour Brownies and 3rd East Rainbows but over the years I have also been a leader with 11th St Clement and 12th Grouville Brownies and 1st and 2nd East Rainbows.
Whilst I enjoy the weekly meetings with the girls I am keen to take advantage of the opportunities for large scale events and in the past I have taken on roles such as a coordinator for the Big Brownie Birthday celebrations in 2014 and for the Girlguiding Jersey Centenary Battle of Flowers float last year.
I would like to extend my thanks to Michele Peace and Nicky Maindonald for leading us over the last five years. They have been inspirational leaders to us all.
