Girl Guides return to Willetton
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
