Harleston District consists of Harleston, Pulham and Dickleburgh, in which we have two Rainbow units, two Brownie units and one Guide company and one Ranger (Senior Section) unit.
Harleston Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers have been busy. They celebrated Thinking Day by getting together and making crowns and playing games in the evening and wearing their uniform or promise badge to school for the day. The units have collected food and goods for the food bank in Harleston.
The Guides went on camp in October to Keswick and had a great time despite the weather and now have their own allotment. Some of the Guides, who have now joined Rangers, went to see the Trooping of the Colour. As part of her Commonwealth Award a member of the Rangers studied bees and made bee boxes with the Guides to help the bee population.

Garboldisham Rainbows went to the Oasis Camel Park and really enjoyed the evening.
2nd Long Stratton Brownies and their leader Josie Thurston celebrated their 40 year birthday in June 2016. Josie Thurston was the leader who started the Brownie pack and is still their leader today. The Brownies have enjoyed many holidays at Hallowtree, Ipswich and can’t wait for the next one!
Wayland district covers the market town of Attleborough and its surrounding villages, where we have units in East Harling and Great Ellingham. The District has three Rainbow units, five Brownie units and two Guide units.
As a District we have a number of events each year – the most recent being participation in the Attleborough Carnival during July 2016. We often celebrate Thinking Day together in February, so all the girls involved in the District can meet each other and get a sense of Girlguiding being a large organisation! Girls can often be seen out and about – several units have just walked through the village of Great Ellingham looking for bears as part of the Teddy Bear Festival.
Several of the Brownie units enjoy pack holidays, often at either Patteson Lodge or the Bidwell Centre. The Guides have been known to camp during the summer holidays. Rainbows don’t miss out – there is usually a sleepover once a year!
All our units follow their own section programme, Rainbow roundabouts, Brownie interest badges and Guides Go For It! challenges regularly feature, alongside various challenge badges, games, cooking and outdoor events.
