Girlguiding news

There's lots of Guiding news around just now, and a few things leapt out enough that I wanted to share:

A new girl every hour in 2011 - isn't that great? What an eye-catching spin on the statistics

Devoted Guide leader hangs up her woggle - this leader sounds wonderful and I hope she is persuaded to stay as an assistant guider with a unit or be involved at division or county level because she really seems to get the useful aspects of the Girlguiding programme and to have inspired a lot of girls

And finally, it appears I am not alone in thinking both Guiding AND Scouting rule - the Chief Guide and Scouts UK Chief Commissioner have issued a joint statement to that effect.

Guiding does Rule :-) I was at Pax Lodge a couple of weeks ago, and was excited to spot the folk i had been with in the BBC VT of the popularity of Girl Guides. I have started a new unit about a year ago and we have rapidly grown in numbers- the girls are lovely and very keen and absolute pleasure to be around and i can heartily endorse volunteering. You get so much more back than you give. :-)

it's a good way of putting it, yes! Sounds much better than Guiding grew by 1.5%.
