We are now taking bookings for the Region's big virtual sleepover which is being held over the weekend of 20th - 21st February to celebrate World Thinking Day.  Join us as we travel across the globe, checking in with the five WAGGGS World Centres in London, Mexico, India, Switzerland and Africa.  The event is open to all Sections and you can register as a group or as individuals - click here to find out more!

Golden Anniversary Badge

This year the Region celebrates its 50th birthday and we would like you to join the celebrations by taking part in The Golden Anniversary Challenge which will run until 31st May 2021.

St Ann's Manor

In response to the UK Government's latest measures to try and restrict the spread of COVID-19, Region staff are once again working from home.  The main office number is now diverting through to a member of staff who will answer your call on a mobile phone and forward messages to colleagues via e-mail, but it would be appreciated if you could whenever possible make contact via e-mail which remains the quickest and easiest way to reach us - e-mail addresses for all Region staff can be found here.  We will do our very best to provide you with our usual high level of service and support, and we appreciate your continued patience during these difficult times.

A reminder that our online training opportunities are still available - click here to find out more, and all the Region's resources and badges are available from our online shop - click here (please bear with us as despatch and delivery might be slightly delayed).

We hope it won't be too long before we are all back at St Ann's; keep watching the Region Website and Newsletters for the latest updates.
