A new unit for guides and rangers has been started on Anglesey to enable us to share in the fun and friendship of Girlguiding in a new way. The unit will meet online every fortnight for a variety of activities. The first meeting was a great success, and an interesting package of materials has been posted out to group members for use in the first series of meetings. The meetings will continue into the summer, and we hope to be able to arrange opportunities to meet up for outdoor events.
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.
