Welcome

Welcome to Girlguiding Norfolk, which is part of Girlguiding UK.

Norfolk is one of the 12 Counties in the Girlguiding Anglia Region. There are over 8,000 members in Norfolk in seaside & historical towns, rural villages and the city of Norwich.

Our membership comes from Rainbows aged 5-7, Brownies 7-10, Guides 10-14, Senior Section 14-25 and adult leaders 18 +.

Leaders are all volunteers supplying their time planning to provide exciting and interesting weekly meetings for the young members. Our aim is to develop the girls’ potential with a fun and exciting weekly programme in a ‘girl only space’. The

The programmes are ‘girl led’ where the young people are encouraged to choose their activities giving varied and balanced sessions. These can be from cooking, camping, world issues, sports or music to more adventurous activities such as canoeing, abseiling and archery. They also include opportunities to discuss issues concerning the young people of today, such as body image or protecting the environment.

Residential events are an opportunity for the girls to gain independence whether this is at an activity centre or camping. The older girls can apply to take part in International events/ Duke of Edinburgh Scheme with young members from other Counties in the Anglia Region.

Norfolk has a residential centre ‘Patteson Lodge‘ with a Heritage centre ‘the ARC‘ within the grounds. There is also a jointly owned building with the Scouts at Eaton Vale which is residential and offers a wide range of outdoor pursuit activities.

Girlguiding offers a wide range of opportunities for the young members and volunteers. Not only do the young people gain from being part of the organisation but the leaders develop their own skills in leadership, team building and time planning, so good to add to a CV!
