It is really important that DBS checks are kept up to date in order that we can provide an environment for our girls and volunteers which is as safe as possible.
If you are a Leader and receive a reminder that your DBS check is due for renewal, please contact your local verifier immediately. Girlguiding are no longer offering the time extension which was available during the pandemic, and if your DBS is not renewed when requested, your membership will be removed and you will not be able to return to Girlguiding for three years. We don't want to lose you!
Spread a little joy with our latest additions to the Region online shop.
In response to a request from one of our members, we are now offering Christmas cards featuring a very popular artistic impression of St Ann's Manor in the snow. These high quality cards are 150mm x 105mm and are printed with a simple 'Season's Greetings' on the inside. £2.00 plus postage and packing for a pack of five with envelopes.
Our 'Thank you' and 'Congratulations' postcards are very handy for all kinds of occasions and if you send them to your friends, neighbours and work colleagues as well as your unit helpers and supporters, you will also be raising the profile of Girlguiding South West England. £1.00 per pack for five cards of one design plus envelopes, the postcards are blank on the reverse for your own message. Buy a pack to take to your unit meetings and another for your kitchen drawer!

The Great Region Ramble will cross the finishing line on 31st October. The Challenge has been a huge success, encouraging members of all ages to get out and about and to either further their love of walking, or in some cases, to discover a new interest. This is a really exciting time to be taking on the role of Walking Adviser and to build on what has been achieved over the last few months - so why don't you apply for the role?
