Heritage Open Days 2020 : Welcome to Norfolk Girlguiding Archive Resource Centre
The ARC is delighted to share our collection with you here on our website and on our Facebook page
As we are unable to open our building for you this year, we are holding virtual Heritage Open Days instead.
12/13th September 10am – 4pm
19/20th September 10am – 4pm
Our archivist, Helen, and her team will be on hand during these times to answer questions and respond to your comments. Contact them through our Facebook page or by emailing email@example.com
The Heritage Open Day pages website will still be available for you to view outside these times, and do contact us on Facebook. However, response times may be longer during the week.
The pages will stay on the website so do use them for unit meetings to visit a museum, and to inspire Brownies for their Collecting Badge.
Girlguiding has always had nature and the outdoors as one of its programme themes, and this year we are finding some of our old badges to demonstrate this! We have selected birds and include owls (were you one?!), getting back to nature Girl Guide style through camping and, with a specifically Norfolk flavour – a look at the Farmworker Badge through the eyes of our girls who have found out about farming at camps at Gressenhall Union Farm in the past.
Please watch our welcome video and then look at the menu at the side of this page to choose pages that interest you.
