Girl Guiding Cranleigh District covers both Cranleigh & Ewhurst areas. We run four sections: Rainbows for girls aged 5-7, Brownies for girls aged 7-10, Guides for 10-14 year olds and the Senior Section for 14-18 year olds. All this is made possible thanks to the support of our adult volunteers. Currently 170 girls are active members in our District and all are having a fantastic time.
Girlguiding gives girls a safe space where they can be themselves, have fun, make friends, try new things, gain valuable life skills and make a positive contribution
to their communities.
“I have made lots of new friends being part of Guiding and love spending time with them each week doing lots of exciting and different activities.” Willow, Brownie aged 8.
Unfortunately we also have too many girls currently waiting to join Rainbows or Brownies. Some girls have waited for such a long time, they have missed their opportunity to be part of Girlguiding. Our waiting list for Rainbows can be over two years; Brownies currently have to wait up to 18 months to join. We desperately need more adult volunteers to help us open new units or support our existing ones.
Could you volunteer some time each week? Our volunteers receive all the training and support they need.
Even if you cannot commit to helping weekly but would still like to get involved, there are many other areas we need help with. If you have an interesting skill or job that could give our girls inspiration, knowledge, or skills, then please get in touch. We’d love to invite you along to our sessions.
