Here it is! The first blog entry. Let’s hope it’s the first of many as we showcase the exciting events around the county, our “everyday” unit meeting activities and the adventures of Girlguiding Leicestershire.

It’s the beginning of Girlguiding Leicestershire’s centenary celebrations. 100 years of fantastic fun for girls of all ages. Maybe you’ve signed up for a surprise parcel to exchange this month or perhaps you’ve booked onto the Winter Wonderland with your Rainbows or Stargazing with your Brownies. Some people have begun to collect bras and pants to add to our collection for our chosen charity “Smalls for All”. As usual, there’s plenty to choose from. The Centenary Challenge will be launched shortly with places to visit around the county and a wide variety of activities.

Just to keep everyone busy, I’ve decided that I’ll challenge you with a County Commissioner’s challenge too. How many different ways can we make 100? Make the number 100 using tent pegs or Brownie t-shirts. Take a photo and share it by emailing it to the office on, messaging the facebook page “Girlguiding Leicestershire” or instagramming it with the hashtag #girlguidingleicestershire. I made a start with these helium balloons but I’m sure you’ll all be far more imaginative. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.


Happy 2017. Happy Centenary.


Love Rachelxx
