Welcome to our website for Girlguiding Hastings Division.

Here you will find information about Girlguiding in Hastings, and how to join as an adult volunteer or a young member. We currently have 3 Rainbow units, 5 Brownie units, 3 Guide units and 1 Ranger unit, each one led by a team of adult volunteers.

Girlguiding is the UK's leading charity for girls & young women. Girlguiding events, adventures and regular meetings empower girls to be their best and become confident women. With guiding girls have fun, adventure and the space to discover their potential. They go to their first ever sleepover, canoe on rivers, learn about body confidence, and lead their own camp. Or sometimes they simply have fun and try new things with friends. Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. Everything from working in a team, to taking the lead, to speaking out on issues they care about. It helps them develop the skills and confidence to become the young women they want to be, and to make a difference to the world around them.

At this time the weekly meetings of all our sections have been suspended. Once we are given the go ahead to restart our meetings all members will be contacted. Our amazing volunteers will be ready to go with exciting programmes planned so that we can return to delivering the great experiences we can offer to the girls.

The Girlguiding website has set up activities for the girls to do whilst they are unable to attend meetings, “Adventures at Home”.This is the link: https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/what-we-do/adventures-at-home/

Some units are keeping in touch with virtual meetings, which is an excellent idea. Other units are keeping in touch in other ways such as email and social media.
