Girl Guides re­turn to Wil­let­ton

Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

WIL­LET­TON has a brand new girl guide unit –- and it is not just here to sell bis­cuits.

Af­ter four years without any pres­ence in the area, a new lead­er­ship group has re-es­tab­lished the girl guide unit and they will be­gin hold­ing meet­ings this week.

One of the group’s lead­ers, Ca­role O’Brien, said she was ex­cited to see the girl guides re­turn to the lo­cal area and there was much more to them than just sell­ing bis­cuits.

“Sell­ing guide bis­cuits helps us raise funds for all the amaz­ing things we do, while also teach­ing our Guides about ser­vice and re­spon­si­bil­ity,” she said.

“Girl Guides can do any­thing – from help­ing to run com­mu­nity events to learn­ing new skills which could in­clude surf­ing, jug­gling and how to save a life.”

The Nova Girl Guide unit’s first meet­ing is for girls aged be­tween nine and 13 years old on Thurs­day at the Wil­let­ton Guide Hall and will meet weekly dur­ing school terms from 68pm. Their sis­ter unit, the Sun­shine Guides for girls aged be­tween five and nine years old, meet on Mon­days from 5.30-7pm and can be con­tacted at wil­let­tonguides@hot­mail.com.

Con­tact 9479 9800 or wil­let­ton­no­vaguides@gmail. com or visit the Girl Guides WA web­site.
