Happy New Year everyone!

I hope that 2020 will be an excellent one for you all.

As we start a new decade, in Girlguiding we are looking forward to the roll out of our new strategy. Being Our Best has run for 5 years and so it’s time to look forward so as to take Girlguiding to even greater heights. We want to offer guiding to more girls, invite more volunteers to join us, relook at the administration that we do as leaders and offer more fun and challenges to everyone.

Talking of administration - it’s the time of year to prepare for subscription payments by making sure that unit, district, division and county information is correct. Could I please ask you to ensure that your records are ready in time?

Please don’t forget to let me know if any of the girls in your units achieve the Gold Awards so that I can send them a BGO congratulations card and please don’t forget that the BGO awards committee will sit in March so if you know of that extra special volunteer that we need to recognise for her exceptional service, please see details on the website of what to do to nominate her.

I’m looking forward to joining the Guides and leaders from KL and Jakarta at Singapore zoo. Sleeping with the beasts is something that I’ve always wanted to do and I’m so pleased that they have invited me to join them. I’m also excited that I’ll be meeting the girls and leaders in Singapore, Baku and Dubai during my travels.

 I’ll let you know about my visit in my next blog!
