We received a grant from the Anglesey Voluntary and Community Services Response Fund through Medrwn Môn to pay for a summer mailshot to all our members on Anglesey – from the youngest Rainbow to our oldest volunteer. Although there is plenty of information available online, it is still nice to receive an envelope in the post.
We sent a letter explaining the current situation about face to face meetings, and suggested activities suitable for each age group to support the mental health and wellbeing of our members.
We are grateful to Medrwn Môn and all our amazing volunteers for enabling this project.
No face to face meetings can take place at present. They will only start again when allowed by Girlguiding in line with Government guidance, and after risk assessments of properties and units have been completed.
However, Girlguiding has stayed active in new and imaginative ways over the past year. Many leaders have been sending out activities by post or e-mail for girls to do at home, and some of our units are meeting online. ‘Adventures at Home’ are freely available for everyone on the Girlguiding UK website.
Here on Anglesey, we held a Virtual Sleepover in November 2020 and recently launched 2nd Anglesey (Virtual) Guide and Ranger Unit which meets online. Find out more on our News page.
