Hi everyone!

We hope you all had a great festive season, and enjoyed a fun holiday break, whatever you got up to. Did you complete any badges during the holidays? Attend one of the canoeing activity days? Remember to bring your info and badge books to Guides if you have so we can review/sign off any progress! :)


Our first meeting for the year will be this Wednesday, 3rd February. Same as last year, we will be meeting at the Alpen District Guide Hall from 6pm-7:30pm. Please remember to arrive a few minutes early so we can get started on time. Looking forward to seeing you all!
